An Indian who just came from India walks into a hardware store and
asks to see the chain saws. Picking up one, he asked the store clerk,
"How many trees will this one cut in an hour?"
"Oh, that one will cut about five good sized trees in an hour,"
replied the clerk.
"What about this one?" asked the Indian.
The clerk replied, "That's an intermediate model which cuts around ten
"And this one?" asked the Indian.
"That's our best model. It should cut at least 20 trees in an hour,"
said the clerk
"I'll take it!" said the Indian.
Two days later, the Indian returns to the store and angrily states,
"Hey, this saw is terrible. I could only cut three trees in one hour
The clerk says, "Gee, I don't understand that. This is the best
chainsaw we carry. Wait a minute while I check it out."
The clerk pulled on the starter rope and the saw immediately activated
with a loud roar.
'Hey," said the Indian, "what's that noise?"
