fuss: calculating monkey

He has a calculator he likes to play with lately.
This morning he had a brainstorm-

"Dada!  I want you to SWING ME LIKE A MONKEY while I calculate!"

'Swinging like a monkey' is when I grab him by the feet, hoist him upside down and carry him around the house to a soundtrack of primitive grunts and hoots.  So I hefted him up and walked down the hall while he very intently plied the keypad.
We arrived in the bedroom and I set him down.

"Uh, Dada?  Think I calculated the BIGGEST NUMBER EVER.  See?"  Holding out the calculator for my inspection.

"I think you did, Fuss!"
