By the numbers
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 drifter, wanting to earn some money, decided to hire himself out as a handyman-type and started canvassing a wealthy neighborhood.
He went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs for him to do.
“Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?”
The drifter said, “How about 50 dollars?”
The man agreed and told him that the paint and ladders that he might need were in the garage.
The man’s wife, inside the house, heard the conversation and said to her husband, “Does he realize that the porch goes all the way around the house?”
The man replied, “He should. He was standing on the porch.”
A short time later, the drifter came to the door to collect his money.
“You’re finished already?” the homeowner asked.
“Yes,” the man answered, “and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats.”
Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50.
“And by the way,” the drifter added, “that’s not a Porch, it’s a Ferrari.”
