A city slicker came upon two country folk balancing a long piece of lumber vertically on the ground, while a third fellow with a measuring tape climbed up on the lumber.

"What are you doing?", asked the urbanite. "We are trying to measure this piece of wood," replied the country cousin.

"Why not lay it down and measure it?," asked the city fellow.

Nope," replied the country boy. "That won't do it! We want the height, not the length!"
