Now They’re Congressmen

Bob and Ray, two government maintenance guys, 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 Bob, "but we don't have a ladder."


The woman said, "Hand me that wrench out of your toolbox."

She loosened a few bolts, and then laid the pole down.  She took a tape measure from their toolbox, took a measurement and announced, "Eighteen feet, six inches", and walked away.

Ray shook his head and laughed.  "Well, ain’t that just like a 'Miss-know-it-all' woman?" he said.  "We needed the height, and she gives us the length!"

Bob and Ray are still working for the government.

But now they’re both Congressmen.

If you have a joke to share, please send it to me.
