A construction site boss was interviewing men for a job, when along came a
New Yorker.  "I'm not hiring any wise-ass New Yorker," the foreman thought to
himself, so he made up a test hoping that the New Yorker wouldn't be able to
answer the questions, and he'd be able to refuse him the job without getting
into an argument.

"Here's your first question," the foreman said.  "Without using numbers,
represent the number 9.

"Without numbiz?" the New Yorker says.  "Dat's easy," and proceeds to draw
three trees. "What's this?" the boss asks.  "Ain't you got no brains?  Tree
'n tree n' tree makes nine."  "Fair enough," says the boss.

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

The New Yorker stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture that
he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree.  "Dare ya go," he says.
The boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to
represent 99?"  "Each a da tree's is dirty now!  So it's dirty tree, 'n dirty
tree, 'n dirty tree.  Dat's 99."

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

Mr.  New York stares into space again, then he picks up the picture again and
makes a little mark at the base of each tree, and says, "Dare ya go.  A
hundred."  The boss looks at the attempt.  "You must be nuts if you think
that represents a hundred."  The New Yorker leans forward and points to the
marks at the tree bases,
and says..............................

"A little dog comes along and craps by each tree, so now you've got dirty
tree an' a turd, dirty tree an' a turd, an' dirty tree an' a turd, which
makes one hundred.  When do I freakin' start?"

I figured I had to send it ....
