Building Site

An Italian, a Scotsman and a Chinese go for a job on a building site. The Foreman hires them all and tells the Italian he'll be in charge of sweeping up, the Scotsman that he'll be in charge of digging holes and the Chinese that he'll be in charge of Supplies.
The first two tell the Chinese to go and get a brush and a spade and wait for his return. Two hours later the Foreman comes around to check on the progress of his new staff - nothing has been done.
He yells at them and they explain that the Chinese hasn't returned yet with the tools so the Foreman goes off to hunt for him. He searches and searches and finally approaches a large pile of sand. The Chinese jumps out from behind it and yells, "SUPPLIES !!!!!!!".

Sure, and wasn't he the same fella who said that teaching philosophy to prostitutes was simply a case of putting Descartes before the whores?
