    There was a Kentucky phone company that was going to hire
    one team of telephone pole installers, and the boss had to
    choose between a team of two rednecks and a team of two
    northern guys. So the boss met with both teams and said:
    "Here's what we'll do. Each team will be installing 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 northern 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 Darrel, 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, "Darrel
    and me, we got three in."

    The boss gasped, "Three? Those two northern guys put in
    twelve!"

    "Yeah," said Bubba, "but you should see how much they left
    stickin' out of the ground!"
