A Billion Calculator Boobies Later

“BELLIES, bogies and boobies” - just three of the reasons schoolchildren love calculators. And to celebrate Casio’s billionth calculator leaving the production line, the firm has released a list of the favourite words that can be written on the display and read when turned upside down.


Old favourites boobies (or 5318008), gobbles (5378806) and boogie (316008) make the list as do more obscure ones including Esso (0553) and Shell Oil (71077345). More modern words are also being written on calculators in classrooms today, such as Google (376006) and blog (6078).

1. Boobies (5318008)
2. Bellies (5317738)
3. Boobless (55378008)
