There was a Midwestern phone company that was going to hire one team of telephone pole installers and the boss had to choose between a team of idiots
and a team of geniuses. So the boss met with both teams and said: "Here's what we'll do--each team will be installing poles out on the new road for a
day. The team that installs the most phone poles gets the job."
Both teams headed right out. At end of the shift, the genius guys came back and the boss asked them how many they had installed, and they said that it
was tough going, but they'd put in twelve. Forty-five minutes later, the idiots came back in and they were totally exhausted.
The boss said, "Well, how many poles did you guys install?"
The team leader wiped his brow and sighed, "We got three in."
The boss gasped, "Three? Those geniuses put in twelve!"
"Yeah," said the idiot leader, "but you should see how much they left sticking out of the ground!"
