But the details get complicated.
Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
A beautiful blonde teenager, wanting to earn some extra money for the
summer, decided to hire herself out as a ‘handy-woman,’ and started
canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood.
She went to the front door of the first house, and asked the owner
if he had any odd jobs that she could do.
“Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch,” he said.
“How much will you charge me?”
Delighted, the girl quickly responded, “How about $50?”
The man agreed and told her that the paint brushes and everything
she would need was in the garage. The man’s wife, hearing the
conversation, said to her husband, “Does she realize that our porch
goes ALL the way around the house?”
He responded, “That’s a bit cynical, isn’t it?”
The wife replied, “You’re right. I guess I’m starting to believe
all those dumb blonde jokes we’ve been getting.”
Later that day, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.
“You’re finished already?” the startled husband asked.
“Yes,” the blonde replied, “and I even had paint left over, so I
gave it two coats.”
Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50, and handed
it to her along with a $10 tip.
“And, by the way,” the blonde added, “It’s not a Porch, it’s a Lexus.”
