Car Talk's "Lame Joke of the Week"

Tom and Ray of NPR's Car Talk give the Lame Joke Of The Week, courtesy of Dave Mowrey:

Tennessee mechanical engineers Bubba and Ray were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up. A woman walked by and asked what they were doing.

"We're supposed to find the height of the flagpole," said Bubba, "but we don't have a ladder."

The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a few bolts, and laid the pole down. Then she took a tape measure from her pocket, took a measurement, announced, "Eighteen feet, six inches," and walked away.

Ray shook his head and laughed. "Ain't that just like a blonde! We ask for the height and she gives us the length!"

Thing I'm thankful for: people who know much, much more than I do and willingly share what they know.
