Excellent Political Joke

June 11th, 2009 03:23pm by flipvine

Can’t take credit for this one, if you’re the kind of Playboy reader I am, the first place you look is the centerfold and then immediate after that you read through the Party Jokes page.  Well, I’d say every couple issues there’s a gem of a joke – a diamond in the rough – that’s worth serious commemoration.  This is one of those jokes:

us-white-house-fenceThree contractors were bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House. The first contractor said, “I figure the job will run about $900 – $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.”

The second contractor announced, “I can do this job for $700 – $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.”

The third contractor leaned over to the White House official and whispered, “$2700.”

The incredulous White House official asked him, “How did you come up with such a high figure?”

The contractor smiled and said, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the second guy to fix the fence.”

And if you really must know, it was in the April 2009 issue of Playboy. :-D
