The local sheriff was looking for a deputy, so Kenny went in to try out for the job. The sheriff knew that Kenny wasn’t exactly the brightest bulb in the box, but he humored himself by giving Kenny an interview.
“Okay, Kenny” the sheriff drawled. “What is 1 and 1?”
Without hesitating, Kenny replied, “If you put two ones together, it would be an 11.”
The sheriff was surprised by the unconventionally correct answer, so he then asked, “What two days of the week start with the letter ‘T’?”
“Today and tomorrow.”
He was again surprised that Kenny supplied an answer that was correct in a way he hadn’t thought of.
“Now Kenny, listen carefully: Who killed Abraham Lincoln?”
Kenny thought really hard for a minute and finally admitted, “I don’t know.”
Relieved the sheriff smiled, “Well, why don’t you go home and work on that one for a while?”
So, Kenny wandered home where his wife was waiting to hear the results of the interview. Kenny was excited, “I think it went pretty good! It’s only my first day on the job, and they already got me working on a murder case!”
