>There is a factory in Northern Minnesota which makes the Tickle Me Elmo>>toys.>>>>The toy laughs when you tickle it under the arms.>>>>
Well, Lena is hired at The Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her>>first day promptly at 0800.>>>>The next day at 0845 there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door.>>>>
The Foreman throws open the door and begins to rant about the new >>employee.>>>>He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up,>>putting the entire production line behind schedule.>>>>The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the 2 men>>march down to the factory floor.>>>>
When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me>>Elmo?s all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to>>pile up.>>>>Yet the end of the line stands Lena surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me>>Elmo?s.>>>>She has a roll of plush red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles.>>>>
The 2 men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps>>it>>around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little>>package between Elmo's legs.>>>>
The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter.>>>>After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and >>approaches>>Lena.>>>>"I'm sorry," he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, but I>>think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you>>yesterday........>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
"Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles".>>
