plant a tree!

  1. Two blonde girls were working for the city public works
    department, one would dig a hole and the other would follow
    behind her and fill the hole in.

    They worked up one side of the street, then down the other,
    then moved on to the next street, working furiously all day
    without rest, one girl digging a hole, the other girl
    filling it in again.

    An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn't
    understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole
    digger, 'I'm impressed by the effort you two are
    putting in to your work, but I don't get it -- why do
    you dig a hole, only to have your partner follow behind and
    fill it up again?'

    The hole digger wiped her brow and sighed, 'Well, I
    suppose it probably looks odd because we're normally a
    three-person team. But today the girl who plants the trees
    called in sick.'
