Help Wanted

A local business was looking for office help. They put a sign in the window,  stating the following: 
"HELP WANTED. Must be able to type, must be good with a  computer and must be bilingual
. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer." A short  time afterwards, a dog trotted up to the window,
 saw the sign and went inside.  He looked at the receptionist and wagged his tail, then walked over
 to the sign,  looked at it and whined. Getting the idea, the receptionist got the office  manager. The
 office manager looked at the dog and was surprised, to say the  least. However, the dog looked
 determined, so he led him into the office.  Inside, the dog jumped up on the chair and stared at the 
manager. The manager  said, "I can't hire you. The sign says you have to be able to type." The dog
  jumped down, went to the typewriter and proceeded to type out a perfect letter.  He took out the
 page and trotted over to the manager and gave it to him, then  jumped back on the chair. 
The manager was stunned, but then told the dog, "The  sign says you have to be good with a 
computer." The dog jumped down again and  went to the computer. The dog proceeded to enter
 and execute a perfect program  that worked flawlessly the first time. By this time the manager was
 totally  dumb-founded! He looked at the dog and said, "I realize that you are a very  intelligent dog
 and have some interesting abilities. However, I *still* can't  give you the job." The dog jumped down
 and went to a copy of the sign and put  his paw on the sentences that told about being an Equal 
Opportunity Employer.  The manager said, "Yes, but the sign *also* says that you have to be 
bilingual".  The dog looked at the manager calmly and said "Meow."
