Hiring Cajuns

A Cajun man wants a job, but the foreman won't hire him until he passes a
little math test.

"Here's your first question, the foreman said.
"Without using numbers, represent the number 9." "Without numbers?" the
Cajun says, "Dat is easy." and proceeds to draw three trees. "What's
this?" the boss asks.

"Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree make nine," says the Cajun.

"Fair enough," says the boss. "Here's your second
question. Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99." The Cajun
stares into space for awhile, then picks up the picture that he has just
drawn and makes a smudge on each tree. "Ere you go." The boss scratches
his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to represent 99?"

"Each of da trees is dirty now. So, it's dirty tree, and dirty tree, and dirty
tree. Dat is 99."

The boss is getting worried that he's going to
actually have to hire this Cajun, so he says, "all right, last question.
Same rules again, but represent the number 100." The Cajun stares into
space some more, then he picks up the picture again and makes a little
mark at the base of e ach tree and says, "Ere you go. One hundred." The
boss looks at the attempt. "You must be nuts if you think that
represents a hundred!"

The Cajun leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree
and says, "A little dog came along and crap by each tree.
So now you got dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a turd,
and dirty tree and a turd, which makes one hundred.

....So, when I start?!"

Not bad at all. That's my first time to hear a Cajun joke.
