Subject:  Shaggy Dog

----- Begin Included Message -----

A local business was looking for office help. They put
a sign in the window saying "HELP WANTED. Must be able
to type, must be good with a computer and must be 
bilingual. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer." 

A short time afterwards, a dog trotted up to the window, 
saw the sign and went inside. He looked at the receptionist 
and wagged his tail, then walked over to the sign, looked 
at it and whined. Getting the idea, the receptionist got 
the office manager. The office manager looked at the dog 
and was surprised, to say the least. However, the dog 
looked determined, so he led him into the office. 

Inside, the dog jumped up on the chair and stared at the 
manager. The manager said, "I can't hire you. The sign 
says you have to be able to type." The dog jumped down, 
went to the typewriter and proceeded to type out a perfect 
letter. He took out the page and trotted over to the 
manager and gave it to him, then jumped back on the chair. 

The manager was stunned, but then told the dog, "The 
sign says you have to be good with a computer." The dog 
jumped down again and went to the computer. The dog 
proceeded to demonstrate his expertise with various 
programs and produced a sample spreadsheet and database 
and presented them to the manager. 

By this time the manager was totally dumbfounded! He 
looked at the dog and said, "I realize that you are 
a very intelligent dog and have some interesting 
abilities. However, I still can't give you the job." 
The dog jumped down and went to a copy of the sign 
and put his paw on the part about being an Equal 
Opportunity Employer. 

The manager said, "Yes, but the sign also says that 
you have to be bilingual." The dog looked at him 
straight in the face and said, "Meow."
