Two Engineers, a Blonde & a Flagpole

FlagpoleArthur and James (two engineers) were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up. 

A blonde walked by and asked what they were doing. 

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

The blonde 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 and announced, "Eighteen feet, six inches," and walked away. 

Ray shook his head and laughed. "Just like a blonde! We ask for the height and she gives us the length!"
