Today's joke is below the fold...

A dedicated Teamsters Union worker was attending a convention in Las Vegas
and, as you would expect, decided to check out the brothels nearby. 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 $100.00, what cut do the girls get?"

"The house gets $80.00 and the girls get $20.00."

Mightily offended at such unfair dealings, the 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."

The man asked, "And if I pay you $100.00, what cut do the girls get?"

"The girls get $80.00 and the house gets $20.00"

"That's more like it!" the union man said. He handed the Madam $100.00,
looked around the room and pointed to a stunningly attractive blonde. "I'd like
her for the night."

"I'm sure you would, sir," said the Madam, then gesturing to an 85-year old
woman in the corner, "but according to the Union rules, Ethel here has
Seniority."
