Just doin' my job

(This was sent to me with some additional
descriptors. I'd get blasted no matter what I chose
but you can make up your own equal opportunity
offenses. You can make these guys blonde, from
Tennessee, Alabama football players, Republican or
Democrat, Baptist or Catholic, Vanderbilt graduates
or government employees.)


Two _________ guys were working for the city
works department. One would dig a hole and the
other would follow behind him and fill the hole in.

They worked up one side of the street, then down
the other, then moved on to the next street, working
furiously all day without rest, one guy digging a hole,
the other guy filling it in again.

An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but
couldn't understand what they were doing. So he
asked the hole digger, "I'm impressed by the effort
you two are putting into your work, but I don't get
it -- why do you dig a hole, only to have your partner
follow behind and fill it up again?"

The hole digger wiped his brow and sighed, "Well, I
suppose it probably looks odd because we're normally
a three-man team. But today the guy who plants
the trees called in sick."
