The state department of labor "dol" got a report that a ec wasent paying his help very well and sent a man out to talk to him. When he went to the job site and asked him what his pay scale was. He said "I have one j-man that I pay $500.00 a week and one poor guy that I buy his tobbaco and give him $10.00 a week" The man from the dol said "I want to talk to the tobbaco and $10.00 fella" The ec's responce was "That would be me"

OK it long......

Little Johnny faked sick, and his mom let him stay home from school. About ten o'clock he was feeling better, go figure...

So he asks his mom if he can go out... She says no. Then he sees the construction site across the street, and begs to go over and see what they're doing...

It's a "liitle Johnny Joke" we all know where this is going...

The version I remember has to do with a switch & a carpenter.

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.
