The Hookers Union

I ended up going out on Thursday night with a few friends for beers and dinner so I didn’t have time to write a proper original post. So to make up for it here is a great little email joke that I got a while back that illustrates that not all unions are a good thing.

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 union house?"

"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 green-eyed blonde.

"I'd like her," he said.

"I'm sure you would, sir," said the Madam.

Then she gestured to a 92-year old woman in the corner, "but Ethel here has 67 years seniority and according to union rules, she's next.”


  1. I've already sent it to my buddy the Union business agent.

  2. @ Al, great gums is way better than great teeth.

    @ Lurker, thanks.

    @ Mel, yes I sure am.

    @ Lass, yep.

    @ George, that is golden.

  3. I laughed out loud (yup...I can even spell the words, I'm so resisting the acronym business)

    And yet this joke shows the dark side of the "force" - well done!

    Cheers, Jenny

  4. @ Drake, I have heard that.

    @ Kage, I love all women.

    @ Mama, glad you like it.

    @ Pearson, the dark side is always around here.

  5. Ethel's nickname is Dusty. Want to know why? Take off her knickers and blow... you'll understand.

    Great joke. I loved it.

  6. Ethel is one busy woman. I should get my grandmother in that union...make her earn her keep. Sorry...that was in horrible taste. *thinks a moment* Yeah...that'd never work.

    I have often given some semi-serious thought to heading to Vegas and opening up my own little whorehouse. I'm pretty sure I'd make a bitching Madam.

  7. Hey, she might know a trick or two. If your eyes are closed......!!! haha. Very funny.

  8. @ Sarah, most people usually say that about what I write.

    @ Lost, that is hilarious.

    @ Jewels, yep you would make a great madam.

    @ Barb, that is very true.

  9. Jackie Martling did a great joke about the International House of Sex in Vegas. I can't find the text or the audio for it, but look for it if you haven't heard it. It's a classic.

  10. OT, you never cease to bring the laughs! Thanks for that. :)

  11. I have to say I'm pretty much bummed out I didn't see any Vegas hookers. I thought FOR SURE I'd see at least one, but no. Complete disappointment.

  12. That's awesome! Business working for the workers...just like it was meant to be! But can I just say...ewwww!

  13. Al makes a good point. I wonder, do you have to pay extra for no teeth? Blah.

  14. @ Joshua, I will have to check that out.

    @ Bro, thanks but I didn't write it, I just shared it.

    @ Vinny, thanks.

    @ Virgin, you are welcome.

    @ Sara, that sucks I wanted you to see some as well so you can post pictures.

    @ Random, yep.

    @ Vixen, I sure would hope so.

  15. It is rare that I come across an email joke I I have not heard/read before but this is one of them and I didn't see the punch line coming.

  16. That is a good one. I shudder at the thought.

  17. i started laughing when i read this, but now i feel sad

  18. What a horrible union! No pension plan so poor Ethel has to work at her age.
    That just makes me so sad.

  19. @ Jo-Anne, glad you liked it.

    @ Bushman, same here.

    @ Littlejohn, I am sorry.

    @ Dr Cynicism, same thing I said when I read it.

    @ Ruth, no shit.

    @ Writer, thanks.

    @ Sassy, exactly.

    @ Becca, yes it is.

  20. I'll bet she has a "acute angina."
    bah da boom...

  21. have something for you at my blog
