>>rednecks or
>> a team of two Irish guys.
>> So the boss met with both teams and said: "Here's what we'll do.
>>Each team
>> will install poles out on the new road for a day. The team that
>> the most phone poles gets the job". Both teams headed right out.
>> At end of the shift, Pat and Mike, the Irish guys, came back and
>>the boss
>> asked them how many they had installed. They said that it was
>>tough going,
>> but they'd put in twelve.
>> Forty-five minutes later, Bubba and Duke, the redneck guys came
>>back and
>> they were totally exhausted. The boss asked, "Well, how many
>>poles did you
>> guys install?" Bubba, the team leader wiped his brow and sighed,
>>"Duke and
>> me, we got three in."
>> The boss gasped, "Three? Those two Irish guys put in twelve!"
>> "Yeah," said Bubba, "but you should see how much they left
>>stickin' out of
>> the ground!"
