If "2" named a variable in a computer program, the value of "2" could be 2.5. ;)  I don't know of any programming language where a digit can name a variable.  But "Two," "two," and "TWO" certainly can.  A yes, in some programming languages, case does matter.  So, in them the value of "two" can differ from the value of "TWO."  In the C programming language, for example, you can write:

Two = 2;
two = 5;
TWO = Two + two;

And what will you get when the computer prints the value of TWO?  You'll get 7. ;)

Despite his rude behavior otherwise, I thought his joke about 2+2=5 for very large values of 2 was funny.
