Does "1010" represent one thousand and ten? ten? another number? something else?
Does "11" represent eleven? three? another number? something else?
Does "=" mean "is equal to"?

One thousand and ten equals eleven?

Does the eleven represent something specific?
Does it represent people?
e.g. a soccer team?

Does 1010 actually refer to the quantity of an object? So there are 1010 somethings here?
Could there be a non-integer quantity of these, like 1010.5? Or is it something which would neccessarily be numerate quantities, like a egg?
I suppose you could possibly have 1.5 eggs, but not normally without the mess :-)

Is "1010" being pronounced "One thousand ten"? "Ten-ten"? "One thousand and ten"? Does it matter?

There are a lot more than one word on each line, and there are three lines, but there are only four words involved in the pun? Huh? Are the four relevant words "One" Thousand" "Ten" & "Eleven"?

Did a second person say "Eleven"?

Yope to they were counting something: were they counting, but not counting anything? were they counting something intangible? (seconds? The length of time it takes to say "one thousand one" is about one second, but when you get to the multy-syllable numbers many folks drop the "one thousand".)

His job is relevant. Hmmmm.
Is his job in industry?
manufacturing?
medicine?
politics?
law enforcement?
government?
education?
sales? (if yes, retail? wholesale?)
skilled labor?
unskilled labor?
law?
service?
hospitality?

Ok, so someone in a story said some sort of pun with the words "One thousand ten" in it? This is a commonly seen?/heard? pun that many people would know? The man's occupation is relevent? Or when Rarab said the man, do you take that to mean the author? Is there an autor to the story? Or is it general sort of bit from here, bit from there, no real single author? Is the author male? Female? Is it written originally in english? And the pun said by the man in the story leads you to the pseudo equation 1010=11?

Is the first guy counting 'thous' or some other play on the word (maybe counting female pigs - sows, and he has a lisp?), so the other guy hears 1 thous and ten so he adds one and ten to get 11.

A pig farmer called an editor of a paper that a train had ran over "1010" pigs. The editor discovered he had a lisp, so he put 11-1 sow and 10 pigs. NICE JOB ALL OF YOU
