there are more than 10 kinds of people in the world

A correspondent on a mailing list I subscribe to uses the .sig “There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those who understand Vigesimal, and 9 others.”

Even after checking what vigesimal was, I had to think about this for a bit because initially I thought he was wrong. If I understand correctly, I think he means “J others”. Anybody out there got any other suggestions?
