Looking for a lumberjack.

A large, well established, Canadian lumber camp advertised that they were looking for a good lumberjack.

The very next day, a skinny little man showed up at the camp with his axe. The boss took one look at the little man and told him to leave.

“Just give me a chance to show you what I can do,” said the skinny man.

“Okay, see that giant redwood over there?” said the boss. “Take your axe and go cut it down.”

The skinny man headed for the tree, and in five minutes he was back knocking on the boss’s door.

“I cut the tree down,” said the man.

The boss couldn’t believe his eyes and said, “Where did you get the skill to chop down trees like that?”

“In the Sahara Forest,” replied the puny man.

“You mean the Sahara Desert,” said the boss.

The little man laughed and answered back, “Sure, that’s what they call it now!”

The chief of staff of the US Air Force

decided that he would personally intervene in the recruiting crisis affecting the country’s armed services. So, he directed that a nearby Air Force base be opened and that all eligible young men and women be invited. As he and his staff were standing near a brand new F-15 fighter jet, a pair of twin brothers walked up to them.

The chief of staff stuck out his hand and introduced himself. He looked at the first young man and asked, “Son, what skills can you bring to the Air Force?”

The young man looked at him and said, “I’m a pilot.”

The general got all excited, turned to his aide and said, “Get him in today, all the paperwork done, everything, do it!” The aide hustled the young man off.

The general looked at the second young man and asked, “What skills can you bring to the Air Force?”

The young man said, “I chop wood.”

“Son,” the general replied, “we don’t need wood choppers in the Air Force, this is the 20th century!”

“Well,” the young man said, “you hired my brother!”

“Of course, we did,” said the general, “he’s a pilot!”

The young man rolled his eyes and said,

“You’re not getting it. I have to chop it before he can pile it!”
