Help Wanted

One day, a sign appeared in an office window. It read: "Help wanted. Must type 70 words a minute. Must be computer literate. Must be bilingual. An equal opportunity employer." A Maltese dog ambling down the street saw the sign, walked in, and applied for the job.

The office manager said, "I can't hire a dog for this job." The Maltese pointed to the line: "An equal opportunity employer." So the manager said, "Okay, take this letter and type it." The Maltese went off to the typewriter and returned a minute later with the finished letter, perfectly typed.

The manager, looking to stump the Maltese, said: "Here is a problem. Write a computer program for it and run it." Fifteen minutes later, the Maltese came back with the correct answer. The manager still wasn't convinced. "I can't hire a dog for this position," he said. "You've got to be bilingual." The Maltese looked up at the manager and said, "Meow."
