in honor of labor...

Bubba and Ray, 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, and 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, supervising the reconstruction of New Orleans.

three days away from labor for most of you. enjoy. have a glass of gin...
