Two mechanical engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up.
   A woman walked by and asked what they were doing.
   "We're supposed to find the height of the flagpole," said Bubba, "but we don't have 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 pocket, took a measurement and announced, "Eighteen feet, six inches," and walked away.
   Ray shook his head and laughed. "Ain't that just like a woman!  We ask for the height and she gives us the length!"
   Bubba and Ray are currently working for the government, supervising the reconstruction of the New Orleans levees.
