This is an old old joke so many may have heard it before but I am going to repeat it.  A back woods carpenter was building a garage and he needed some material so he went to a lumber yard and asked for some 4X2s.  The sales man asked how long he needed them.  The man said quite a while I'm building a garage.  While the man was working on the garage a helper would pick a nail and inspect it and throw it away. he would pick another and use it.  After awhile he guy asked why he was throwing the nails away and the reply was they had the heads on the wrong side.  The guy replied you dummy you use those on the other side of the house.
