Union Rules

A somewhat off color joke making the email rounds during this jocular time of year. I’m sure it’s old, but I’d never heard it before. I’ll hide most of it under the fold to protect those who might be offended:

Union Rules

A dedicated teamster union worker was attending a convention in Las Vegas and decided to check out the local  brothels.

When he got to the first one, he asked the Madam, “Is this a union house?” “No,” she replied, “I’m  sorry it isn’t.” “Well, if I pay you $100, what cut do the girls get?” “The house gets $80 and the girls get $20,” she answered.

Offended at such unfair dealings, the union man stomped off down the street in search of a more equitable,  hopefully unionized shop. His search continued until finally he reached a brothel where the Madam responded,

“Why yes sir, this is a union house. We observe all union rules.” The man asked, “And if I pay you $100, what cut do the girls get?” “The girls get $80 and the house gets $20.” “That’s more like it!” the union man said.

He handed the Madam $100, looked around the room, and pointed to a stunningly attractive blonde. “I’d like her,” he said. “I’m sure you would, sir,” said the Madam. Then she gestured to a 92-yearold woman in the corner, “but Ethel here has 67 years seniority and according to union rules, she’s next.”
