The Joys of Self Employment ….March 21, 2013





The  Newfoundland Department of Employment, claimed a boat owner wasn’t paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent to Burin to investigate him.

GOVT  AGENT: “I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them”.

Boat Owner: “Well, there’s  Clarence, my hired hand, he’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board. Then there’s the mentally challenged guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of Lamb’s rum and a dozen Labatt Lite every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also gets to sleep with my wife occasionally”.

GOVT  AGENT: “That’s the guy I want to talk to – the mentally challenged one”.

Boat Owner: “That’ll be me. What’d you want to know”?

  1. L.M.A.O…… 😀
    Q: What’s the difference between a Catholic wife and a Jewish wife?
    A: The Catholic wife has real orgasms and fake jewellery, while the Jewish one the opposite :D.

  2. I’ve a joke told to me by an old priest.
    There was a hardware company who deciding they needed to have a big advertising campaign and bought air time for TV adverts on Good Friday and the Easter weekend. Well the advert that went out on Good Friday was a scene of Christ in all his agony on the cross and surrounded by Roman soldiers. The camera pans to Christ’s outstretched arm and along to his hand with the nail through it. Up comes the logo, ‘If you want a secure hold use Thompson’s Lockfast Nails.’
    Well the phones were melting with complaints at the TV company. So the chairman gets onto the advertising company and tells them to get it sorted for Easter Sunday.
    Easter Sunday comes and a new advert is produced. Two Roman soldiers running, finally coming to a stop at a wall as a foot disappears over the top. One Roman soldier turns to the other and says,’ Told you we should have used Thompson’s Lockfast Nails’.
