    A West Virginia phone company was going to hire a team of telephone pole installers, and the boss had to choose between a team of two rednecks and a team of two Irish lads. So the boss met with both teams and said: "Here's what we'll do. Each team will install 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 Irish lads, 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(12). Forty-five minutes later, Bubba and Darrell, 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, "Darrell and me, we got three in." The boss gasped, "Three? Those two Irish guys put in twelve!" "Yeah," said Bubba, "but you should see how much they left stickin' out of the ground!"
