JOKE: Dogs Need Not Apply


A local business was looking for office help. They put a sign in the window, stating the following: "HELP WANTED. Must be able to type, must be good with a computer and must be bilingual. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer."

A short time afterwards, a dog trotted up to the window, saw the sign and went inside. He looked at the receptionist and wagged his tail, then walked over to the sign, looked at it and whined.

Getting the idea, the receptionist got the office manager. The office manager looked at the dog and was surprised, to say the least. However, the dog looked determined, so he lead him into the office. Inside, the dog jumped up on the chair and stared at the manager. The manager said, "I can't hire you. The sign says you have to be able to type."

The dog jumped down, went to the typewriter and proceeded to type out a perfect letter. He took out the page and trotted over to the manager and gave it to him, then jumped back on the chair. The manager was stunned, but then told the dog, "The sign says you have to be good with a computer."

The dog jumped down again and went to the computer. The dog proceeded to enter and execute a perfect program, that worked flawlessly the first time.

By this time the manager was totally dumb-founded! He looked at the dog and said, "I realize that you are a very intelligent dog and have some interesting abilities. However, I *still* can't give you the job."

The dog jumped down and went to a copy of the sign and put his paw on the sentences that told about being an Equal Opportunity Employer.

The manager said, "Yes, but the sign *also* says that you have to be bilingual".

The dog looked at the manager calmly and said "Meow."

'The Magician' Turns $1 Million Into $18.3 Million At World Series Of Poker

The Magician..Antonio Esfandiari

The Magician has done it again.

Antonio Esfandiari outlasted Sam Trickett on Tuesday to win $18.3 million -- the biggest payout in poker history.

Here's how it all went down:

Esfandiari went all in with trip 5s on the final hand, prevailing against Trickett's flush draw, to come out a millionaire 18 times over. Esfandiari, the top money winner in tournament poker, will add this honor to a pair of World Poker Tour titles and his World Series of Poker bracelet.

Held at the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, this was a three-day event, and the final hand was the 85th to be played. There was a $1 million buy-in for the "Big One for One Drop Texas Hold'em" event, and the exact figure of Esfandiari's winning total was $18,346,673. (Plus, he received a diamond and platinum bracelet.)

Trickett earned more than $10.1 million for his second-place finish. The tournament began with 48 players.

For perspective on Esfandiari's winnings, consider that the following NBA stars will be making less than $18 million in salary for the upcoming season: LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade. Reigning Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning has a base salary of $10.75 million for the 2012 season.

The 2012 World Series of Poker continues with other events through July 16.
