Trouble at the Factory
A new employee is hired at the Tickle Me Elmo factory. The next day, she reports promptly at 8:00 am. At 8:45 am, there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door. The Foreman from the assembly line throws open the door, and begins to rant about the new employee. He complains that she is incredibly slow, and the line is backing up, putting the entire plant behind schedule. The Personnel Manager decides that he should see this for himself, so the two men march
down to the factory floor.
When they get there, the line is so backed up that there are Elmos all over the floor, and they are beginning to pile up. At the end of the line stands the new employee.
She has a roll of red plush fabric and a big bag of marbles. The men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles, and begins to sew the little package between Elmo's legs.
The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter.
After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches the woman. "I'm sorry," he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face,"but I think you misunderstood me yesterday.
Your job is to give each Elmo two test tickles."
