********* Monday Mirth 003

Wow where did that week go?, internet was down most of the week at work and I have just been so busy with sorting things out at home I haven’t had chance to put up my daily smile………….. hopefully internet will be back to normal and i can post everyday again, I did manage a bit of me time on Saturday by going to Langstone Harbour and spent a wonderful few hours watching all the wading birds arriving and feeding as the tide came in and went out, I feel so lucky living a few minutes drive away from a wonderful relaxing place. I need to go through my photos and submit a few too.

Here is today’s smiler

A Irish man wants a job, but the foreman won’t hire him until he passes a
little maths test.

Here is your first question, the foreman S aid.  "Without using numbers,
represent the number 9." “Without numbers?”  The Irish Man says, “Dat is easy.” And proceeds to draw three trees. “What’s this?” the boss asks “Ave you got no brain?  Tree and tree and tree make nine,” says the Irish

“Fair enough,” says the boss.  "Here’s your second question.  Use the same
rules, but this time the number is 99." The Irish Man stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree.  "Ere you go." The boss scratches his head and says, “How on earth do you get that to represent 99?” “Each of da trees is dirty now.  So, it’s dirty tree, and dirty tree, and
dirty tree.  Dat is 99.”

The boss is getting worried that he’s going to actually have to hire this
Irish Man, so he says, “All right, last question.  Same rules again, but
represent the number 100.” The Irish Man stares into space some more, then he picks up the picture again and makes a little mark at the base of each tree and says, “Ere you go. One hundred.”
The boss looks at the attempt.  "You must be nuts if you think that
represents a hundred!" The Irish Man leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree and says, “A little dog come along and crap by each tree.  So now you got dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a turd, and dirty tree and a turd,
which makes one hundred.”

“So, when do I start?”
