Sven & Ole
Two Minnesota engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up.
A woman walks by asks what they were doing.
"Ve're supposed to find da height of dis flagpole, "said Sven, "but ve don't haff a ladder."
The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a couple of bolts, and laid the pole down on the ground.
Then she took a tape measure from her purse, took a measurement, announced, "Twenty-one feet, six inches," and walked away.
Ole shook his head and laughed. "Ain't dat just like a voman! Ve ask fer da height and she gives us da length!"
Sven and Ole have since quit their engineering jobs and are currently serving in the United States Senate.
Now they are trying to determine the height of the Fiscal Cliff!
