Freddie and Pierre...
Freddie is working up on the roof.
Pierre is on the ground watching him.
Freddie takes a nail out of his nail apron, looks at it, and pounds it into the roof. Then he takes out a nail, looks at it and throws it down on the ground. He continues, seemingly randomly, looking at a nail and either driving it into the roof or throwing it to the ground.
Pierre yells: "Freddie! What are you doing?"
Freddie: " I'm fix'n the roof."
Pierre: "No, I mean, why do you look at the nails and sometimes pound 'em into the roof, and other times throw 'em to the ground?!"
Freddie: " Well, that's easy to 'splain, iffin the heads on the right end of the nail, I 'kin pound it in. But iffin the heads on the wrong end of the nail, I can't pound it in, so I throw it away."
Pierre is beside himself, thinking how stupid Freddie must be.
Pierre yells: "Freddie, you idiot, you gotta save those nails. Theyz for the other side of the roof! "
