I might not be taking this question seriously enough...

• Lois: Peter, this is for the win, say the word "what". Peter: Wow. Okay. This really separates the men from the boys. Lois: Peter, just say "What"!! Peter: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, now, Lois. This is not a race. Okay, I wanna say "who." Oh, boy. Fantastic Four. Fantastic Four, steak, steak, steak, steak, a small amount of peas. Is it "what?" Lois: That's right. You win, Peter. You did it.

As an apology for my previous answer, I'd like to offer the following:

Five fenceposts can have four panels of fencing placed between them.

And,

A '5' lit up on a 7-segment display will have four interior right angles. (By coincidence of it being made of also 5 distinct segments.)

And stretching it,

according to Wikipedia's page of List of numbers in various languages, there are no languages where the common word for 'four' is a subset or anagram subset of the word for 'five', at least as far as I could tell with my layman's eye, which was a bit of a disappointment. But graphically speaking, in the Tai-Kadai language Lao, 4 could fit into 5 quite neatly. .

• I like that numbering system. "Okay, we have two loops and some curves. What should we do for the next number?" "I think another loop would be appropriate." Commented Jun 17, 2015 at 16:41
