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:
The Montana Department of Employment, Division of Labor Standards, claimed a small rancher was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.
Agent: “I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.”
Rancher: “Well, there’s my hired hand who’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 percent of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also cooks dinner for my wife occasionally.”
Agent: “That’s the guy I want to talk to – the mentally challenged one.”
Rancher: “That would be me.”
