A woman desperately looking for work goes to the Tickle Me Elmo Factory. The
Personnel Manager goes over her resume and explains to her that he regrets that
he has no jobs worthy of her skills. The woman answers that she really needs
work and will take almost anything.
The Personnel Manager hems and haws and finally says he does have a low skill
job on the "Tickle Me Elmo" assembly line. The woman happily accepts. He takes
her down to the line and explains her duties and that she should be in at 8:00
AM the next day. The next day at 8:45 there's a knock at the Personnel Manager's
door. The "Tickle Me Elmo" Assembly Line manager comes in and starts ranting
about the woman just hired. After listening to his screaming for 15 minutes
about how badly backed up the assembly line is, the Personnel Manager suggested
he show him the problem. Together they head down to the line and sure enough
Elmos are backed up from here to Kingdom Come. Right at the end of the line is
the woman he had hired. She has a roll of the material used for the Elmos and
has a big bag of marbles. They both watch as she cuts a little piece of fabric
and takes 2 marbles and starts sewing them between Elmo's legs.
The Personnel Manager starts laughing hysterically and finally after several
minutes of rolling laughter he pulls himself together and walks over to the new
employee and says: "I'm sorry I guess you misunderstood me yesterday. What I
wanted you to do was give Elmo two test tickles."
