    All this football talk is getting really intense. Thought you all might get a little chuckle out of this. If this has been around before I apologize, but living in the "burbs" of Greenville, AL (@40 miles south of Montgomery on I-65 on the way to Mobile) I have not seen it before. Enjoy.

    A Houston construction site boss was interviewing men for a job, when along came a Cajun. I'm not hiring any Cajuns, the foreman thought to himself, so he made up a test to avoid hiring the Cajun without getting in an argument.

    "Here's your first question," the foreman said. "Without using numbers, represent the number nine."

    "Without numbers?" the Cajun says. "Dat is easy," and proceeds to draw three trees.

    "What's this?" the boss asks.

    " 'Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree make nine," says the Cajun.

    "Fair enough," says the boss. "Here is your second question. Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99."

    The Cajun stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree.

    " 'ere you go."

    The boss scratches his head and says, "how on earth do you get that to represent 99?"

    "Each of da trees is dirty now! So, it's dirty tree and dirty tree and dirty tree. Dat is 99."

    The boss is getting worried he's going to have to hire this Cajun, so he says, "All right, last question. Same rules again but represent the number 100."

    The Cajun stares into space some more, then picks up the picture again and makes a little mark at the base of each tree, and says, "Ere you go. One hundred."

    The boss looks at the attempt. "You must be nuts if you think that represent a hundred."

    The Cajun leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree, and says, "A little dog come along and crap by each tree. So now you get dirty tree and a turd, dirth tree and a turd and dirty tree and a turd, which makes one hundred. So when I start?"

    That is pretty damn funny. My mom does the same thing with numbers. When I want to laugh I make her say 70th street. It always comes out 7 tit street.
