Two men in a pickup truck drove into a lumberyard.
One walked in the office and said, “We need some four-by-twos.”
The clerk said, “You mean two-by-fours, don’t you?”
The man said, “I’ll go check,” and went back to the truck. He returned in a minute and said, “Yeah, I meant two-by-fours.”
“OK, now, how long do you want them?”
The customer paused for a minute and said, “I’d better go check.”
After awhile, he returned to the office and said, “A long time. We’re gonna build a house.”
