A Clean Joke

Two tall trees, a birch and a beech, have been growing in the woods for decades, when a new tree starts growing between them.
The beech says to the birch, “That youngster down there is too far away for me to see clearly, is it a son of a beech or a son of a birch?”
The birch responds that the young tree is too far away from it as well. “I cannot tell what it is,” he said.
Just then a woodpecker lands on the young tree.
The birch says, “Woodpecker, you are a tree expert. Can you tell if that is a son of a beech or a son of a birch?”
The bird agrees and pecks away at the small tree. Addressing the tall trees, the bird says, “It is neither a son of a beech nor a son of a birch.
“It is, however, the finest piece of ash I have ever put my pecker in!”

    A peck in time is better than no peck at all.
