THE JOB INTERVIEW

Image

Two men were applying for the same job at the newspaper office to become columnists. One applicant was Caucasian and one was African-American, which really did not make a difference to the Manager of the paper.  After various interviews, several tests, personal appearance,etc. The two applicants remained tied for points……As a tie breaker, HR  decided that he would open the dictionary, blindly point to a word, and let each of them create a short poem from the selected word. He opened the dictionary and his finger landed on the word Timbuktu. The Caucasian immediately said, “I am ready.”

See the stars, See the sand
See the desert caravan.
Camels aligned two by two
Destination: Timbuktu.

Although the HR Director was sure he had a winner, he waited on the second reply. It came shortly.

Tim and me, a’camping we went
Bought three whores and pitched a tent.
They was three and we was two
So I bucked one and Timbuktu.

(Oh well, A newspaper can always use two good columnists.)
