A lumberjack went to the owner of a logging company and applied for a job, claiming to be one of the best loggers in the business.
The owner said, “Okay, show me what you can do. Chop down that redwood over there.”
The lumberjack got to work right away, and in less than five minutes he was done.
The owner was shocked and asked, “How did you chop that tree down so fast?”
The lumberjack said, “I had a lot of practice in the Sahara.”
The owner remarked, “What are talking about? There aren’t even any trees in the Sahara!”
“Well no,” said the lumberjack. “Not anymore.”
