Two engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking at its top. A blonde walked by and asked what they were doing.
“We’re supposed to find the height of this flagpole,” said Sven, “but we don’t have 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 handbag, took a measurement and announced, “Twenty one feet, six inches,” and walked away.
One engineer shook his head and laughed, “Typical blonde! We ask for the height and she gives us the length!”
Edit: It’s actually super interesting because there are all these engineers and people in the comments saying “it’s a cinch” but other’s replies shows that the blonde actually seems to have done one of the smarter things by being practical (even running a string to the top would require a ladder, the flag pulley system doesn’t go all the way top to bottom). Anyway, love the comments.
