Chain Saw
This fellow is looking to buy a saw to cut down some trees in his back yard. He goes to a chain saw shop and asks about
various chain saws.

The dealer tells him, "Look, I have a lot of models, but why don't you save yourself a lot of time and aggravation and get the top-of-the-line model. This chain saw will cut a hundred cords of wood for you in one day."

So, the man takes the chain saw home and begins working on the trees. After cutting for several hours and only cutting two cords, he decides to quit. He thinks there is something wrong with the chain saw. "How can I cut for hours and only cut two cords?" the man asks himself. "I will begin first thing in the morning and cut all day," the man tells himself.

So, the next morning the man gets up at 4 am in the morning and cuts and cuts, and cuts till nightfall, and still he only manages to cut five cords.

The man is convinced this is a bad saw. "The dealer told me it would cut one hundred cords of wood in a day, no problem. I will take this saw back to the dealer," the man says to himself.

The very next day the man brings the saw back to the dealer and explains the problem. The dealer, baffled by the man's claim, removes the chain saw from the case. The dealer says, "Hmm, it looks fine."

Then the dealer starts the chain saw, to which the man responds, "What's that noise?

Dear Patty ~~ Love that joke. I hope all is well at your house.
Thank you for your kind comments.
Glad you liked the jokes etc.
Glad you liked that old photo too.
We were cute little kids back then.
But it is hard to recognize who we
were so long ago.
Take great care, my friend ~ ~
Love, Merle.

I didn't have an idea where it was getting at as I was reading it. The revelation in the last part was what delivered the punchline and really made it funny. What made it funny I think is because all of us are prone to that errr...slip of the mind? Call it what you will, but I had a similar experience with my laptop when I took it to the repair shop.

Well, I wondered. I suppose he was sawing by pushing the chain saw back and forth. That's what I love about some folks. Plain and simple - minded.

Hahaha, that's a surprise ending, for sure.

Had my Chinese Buffet day again. I'm still stuffed from it.

Have a good night, Patty.

Priceless one I am sending to a great DIY man-friend, who is always stuck when he gets a new tool.
