Bubba & Joe Bob & Cousin Joe from Iowa
North & South Carolina and a cousin from Iowa, all mechanical engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up.
a woman walked by and asked what they were doing.
'We're supposed to find the height of the flagpole,' said Bubba, 'but we don't have a ladder.'
The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a few bolts, and laid the pole down. Then she took a tape measure from her pocket, took a measurement, announced, 'Eighteen feet, six inches,' and walked away.
Ray shook his head and laughed. 'Ain't that just like a woman!
We ask for the height and she gives us the length!'
Bubba and Ray are currently working for the government.....
..... and helping to distribute the money from the "stimulus package
