A BLONDE schoolgirl is standing next to her school’s flagpole. The janitor comes up to her and asks her what she’s doing. “I have to find the height of the flagpole for maths class,” she replies.

So the janitor unscrews the flagpole and lays it down on the ground. He measures it with a tape measure and tells her: “It’s 7.62m.”

The blonde girl thanks him, but as he is walking away she mutters to herself: “What an idiot. I wanted the height, not the width.”
