Ken Nordine on his Word Jazz records, did a bit called Looking at Numbers. Here's what he had to say about them:
“Looking at 1, you see that 1 is upright and straight, in the most beautiful beginning

“7 is a cliff below heaven, related somehow to 11
8 are two heads together
9 turns its back on 10”
