It’s Christmas time and Bill and Joe decided to go look for a Christmas Tree. They gathered their axe, a sled, and a broom to brush the trees off so they can get a good look at them. When they finally reach a fine stand of trees, Joe brushes off the first tree, and stands back with Bill to look at it.
“Well, Bill, What do you think?”
“Sorry, Joe, this tree won’t do. Let’s try another one.”
They come upon another nice tree, Joe brushes it off, and they both look at it.

This goes on until nightfall. Both Bill and Joe are cold, tired, and hungry.
“Well, Bill, what do we do now?”
