THE DOG THAT SAYS MEOW
One day, a sign appeared in an office window. It read: "Help wanted. Must type70 words a minute. Must be computer literate. Must be bilingual. An equal opportunity employer."
A dog ambling down the street saw the sign, walked in and applied for the job.
The office manager said, "I can't hire a dog for this job." The dog pointed to the line: "An equal opportunity employer."
The manager said, "Take this letter and type it."
The dog went off to the typewriter and returned a minute later with the finished letter perfectly typed.
So the manager said, "Here's a problem. Write a computer program for it and run it."
Fifteen minutes later, the dog came back with the correct answer. The manager still wasn't convinced. "But I can't hire a dog for this position," he said. "You've got to be bilingual."
The dog looked up at the manager and replied, "Meow."
