A young executive was leaving the office late one evening when he
found the C.E.O. standing in front of the shredder, a piece of
paper in hand, looking befuddled. "Listen," said the C.E.O.,
"this is a very sensitive and most important document, and my
secretary has left for the day. Can you make this thing work?"
"Certainly" exclaims the young exec., turning the machine on, and
inserting the paper.
"Excellent, excellent!" exclaims the C.E.O. as his paper
disappears inside the machine. "I just need one copy."

He must be rewarded!" So, she took a blue ribbon from her hair,
and gently tied it around what nature had provided the Scotsman,
and the two walked away.
Some time later, the Scotsman was awakened by the call of nature,
and walked around to the other side of the tree to relieve
himself. He raised his kilt...and saw where the blue ribbon was
tied. After several moments of bewilderment, the Scotsman said...
