Bubba and Junior were standing at the base of a
flagpole, looking up. A blonde lady walked by and asked what they
"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.
Junior shook his head and laughed. "Ain't that just like a dumb blonde? We
ask for the height, and she gives us the length."
Bubba and Junior are currently doing government work supervising the multi-billion
dollar reconstruction of those New Orleans levees.
