A large, well established, lumber camp advertised that
they were looking for a good lumberjack.
The very next day, a skinny little man showed up at
the camp with his axe and knocked on the head
lumberjack’s door. The head lumberjack took one look
at the little man and told him to leave.
“Just give me a chance to show you what I can do,”
begged the skinny man.
“Okay, see that giant redwood over there? Take your
axe and go cut it down.”
The skinny man headed for the tree, and five minutes
later he returned to tell the head lumberjack that he
had successfully cut the tree down.
The head lumberjack couldn’t believe his eyes.
“Where did you get the skill to chop down trees like
that?” he asked the little man.
“In the Sahara Forest,” replied the little man.
“You mean the Sahara Desert,” said the lumberjack.
The little man grinned and replied, “Oh sure, that’s
what they call it now!”
