This joke just came in over the transom here at Gates of Vienna Enterprises:
A dedicated Teamsters Union worker was attending a convention in Las Vegas and decided to check out the legal brothels in Nevada .
When he got to the first one, he asked the Madame, “Is this a union house?”
“No,” she replied, “I’m sorry, but it isn’t.”
“Well, if I pay you $100, what 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 Madame 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,” she replied.
“That’s more like it!” the union man said. He handed the Madame $100, looked around the room, and pointed to a stunningly attractive green-eyed blonde.
“I’d like her,” he said.
“I’m sure you would, sir,” said the Madam, “but…”
She gestured to a 72-year old woman in the corner.
“…Ethel here has 50 years seniority, and according to union rules, she’s next.”
