“I, for one, like Roman numerals”

“I, for one, like Roman numerals”—“I’” is the Roman numeral for “one”—is a jocular one-line saying that has been printed on many images. The saying was posted on Twitter on October 30, 2014.
 
Variations of the joke had been printed earlier. “I for one… ...but that’s roman numerals for you” was posted on Twitter by Funny Humour on December 1, 2010. “Who wants to learn Roman numerals? I for one” was posted on Twitter by James Martin‏ on June 9, 2014.
         
Other Roman numerals jokes include “I failed my math exam. I couldn’t write 1, 1000, 51, 6, and 500 as Roman numerals. IM LIVID,” “I struggle with Roman numerals until I get to 159. Then it just CLIX,” “I went to a Roman bathroom on the 6th floor. Yes, it was the VI P room,” “Roman numerals to be phased out—not on my watch,” “The cost of joining the Roman Numeral Society was exactly $499. I didn’t have ID” and “The Roman numerals for forty (40) are XL” (i.e., weight gain at 40 makes one Xtra Large),

@kenlowery “Roman numerals: V for five, X for 10, L for 50, C for 100.” “Um, actually, you forgot I, for one.”
