Who Says Roman Numerals Are Awkward?

To commemorate the Ides of March (and Caesar’s untimely but apparently not unpredicted death) here’s a piece on the awkwardness of Roman numerals. Yes, there’s a connection because Brutus and the rest of the senators who presumably knifed Caesar in the Theatre of Pompey, were Romans and therefore used Roman numerals.  So how awkward are these numerals that are actually letters used as numbers? Try singing “99 Bottle of Beer on the Wall” using roman numerals (letters).
