If it is, the Prime Number Shitting Bear will confirm it, by squeezing it out from his or her puckered bear bum.

First guess is, yes, it is.

Nope. I was wrong.
59x43=2537

Wow. Good going, Steve. How'd you figure that one out?

Tried dividing it by every prime number from 3 up to its square root. Why did you pick that number?

I picked that number because it seemed like it very probably could have been a prime. Doesn't it feel primish?
