Building a house

A couple of bubbas drove their pickup truck drove into a lumberyard. One saunters into the office and said, "Howdy. We need us some of them four-by-twos."

The clerk said, "You mean two-by-fours, don't you?"

The bubba says, "Maybe right. Hold on. I'll go check," and headed out went back to the truck. A minute or so later he ambles back in and says, "Yep. That's it, I meant two-by-fours."

"Fine... How long do you need them?"

The bubba paused for a minute, scrached his beard, then said, " Well now I'd better go check."

After awhile, he returned to the office and said, "A long time. Ya see, we're gonna build us a house."
