A guy from the Bronx comes to New Jersey looking for a job. So he goes to a construction site an goes in one of the trailers and talks to the boss for a job opening. The boss doesn't really want to hire him because he looks like a punky kind of guy. So the boss figures that he will give the guy an I.Q. test to see how smart he is.
So he gives the guy a pencil and a piece of paper. He tells the guy "I want you to write something that will equal to 9". The guy thinks about it and scratches his head thinking about it for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes he writes down something and gives the paper to the boss. The boss asks him "What is this supposed to mean?" and the guy says "Well, you see, three trees equal 9. Tree, tree, and tree is 9."
The boss says ok, a little frustrated, and gives the guy his paper back. Then the boss tells him, "Well, I want it to equal 99." The guy thinks about it, scratches his head, and after 10 minutes, he writes down something. He gives it to the boss. The boss asks him ,"What's this supposed to be?" and the guy tells him, "Well, you see, the trees are all dirty, so dirty tree, dirty tree, and dirty tree is 99."
So the boss gives the paper back to the guy and says, "I want you to write something to equal to 100." So the guy sits there, scratches his head, and after 15 minutes he writes something down. He gives the paper to the boss and the boss says, "Now what the hell is this supposed to be?" and the guy says, "Well, you see, a little doggie came by and made a tird under every dirty tree. So, dirty tree and a tird, dirty tree and a tird, and dirty tree and a tird is 100."
