Two men were working at the sawmill and one guy got too close to the saw and cut his ear off.
It fell in the sawdust pit so he jumped down into the pit and was hunting around trying to find it.
The second guy saw him and hollered down, “What’re you doing?”
The first man said that he had cut off his ear and was looking for it.
The second guy said, “I’ll help you” and jumped in the pit.
He was searching around on his hands and knees and then hollered, “I found it!”
The first guy took it and examined it closely, then said, “Keep looking. Mine had a pencil behind it.”
