While a friend and I were visiting Annapolis, we noticed
several students on their hands and knees assessing the
courtyard with pencils and clipboards in hand.
“What are they doing?” I asked our tour guide.

“Each year,” he replied with a grin,
“The upperclassmen ask the freshmen how many bricks it took to finish paving this courtyard.”
“So what’s the answer?” my friend asked him when we were
out of earshot of the freshmen.
The guide replied, “One.”

It took only ONE brick to finish the job. If you remove that last brick, the job will not be finished yet! That is the trick behind this joke. But remember, this is just a joke.
