A dedicated Teamsters 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
"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.

rolled over and bared his behind. After feeling the nurse insert
the thermometer, he heard her announce, "I have to get something.
Now you stay JUST LIKE THAT until I get back!"
She leaves the door to his room open on her way out! He curses
under his breath as he hears people walking past his door, laughing.
After a half hour, the man's doctor comes into the room. "What's
going on here?" asked the doctor.
Angrily, the man answers, "What's the matter, Doc? Haven't you
ever seen someone having their temperature taken?"
After a pause, the doctor confesses, "Not with a carnation".
