Two Minnesota engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up. A woman walks by
and asks what they are doing.
“Ve’re supposed to find da height of da flagpole,” said Sven, “but ve don’t haff 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 pocketbook, took a measurement, announced, “Eighteen feet, six inches,”
and walked away.
Ole shook his head and laughed. “Ain’t dat just like a voman! Ve ask for da height and she
gives us da length!”
