Measurements and Maxine

Bubba and Junior were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up. A young lady 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 and announced, "Eighteen feet, six inches," and walked away.

Junior shook his head and laughed. "Ain't that just like a dumb woman? We ask for the height, and she gives us the length.

Bubba and Junior are currently doing government work advising on the reconstruction
of those New Orleans Levees.

    I didn't realize we had government workers who were that smart. (?)

    So other women carry a wrench with them, like me?

    Some neighborhoods, you've got to carry a wrench at least.

    That's like the two guys who tried to land an airplane. Much sooner than they expected the runway ran out. Trying their best, they stopped the plane right on the edge of the tarmac. The pilot said, "Man, that is the shortest runway I have ever seen."

    The co-pilot said, "Yeah, and it's the widest one I've ever seen."
