An Irishman applies for a job, but the foreman won't employ him until he
Passes a little maths test.
"Here's your first question, the foreman said
"Without using numbers, represent the number 9."

Three trees.
What's this?" the boss asks.
"Haven't you got a brain? Tree and tree and tree makes nine," says the
"Fair enough," says the boss. "Here's your second question. Apply the same

"Each of DA trees is dirty now. So, dat's dirty tree, and dirty tree, and
Dirty tree. Dat equals 99."

Think that represents a hundred!"


The Irishman leans forward and points to the marks at the base of
Each tree, saying: "A little dog came along and cr*pped by each tree. So
Now you've got dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a turd, and dirty tree
And a turd, dat makes one hundred. ... So, when do I be starting the job?!"
