    A Kentucky Phone Company was going to hire a team of telephone pole
    >> installers, and the boss had to choose between a team of two
    >> rednecks and 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 installs 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.
