    A guy walks into the local welfare office, marches up to the Counter

    and says, "Hi... You know, I just HATE drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job."

    The social worker behind the counter says "Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful nymphomaniac daughter. You'll have to drive around in his Mercedes, but he'll supply all of your clothes. Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You'll be expected to escort her on her overseas holiday trips. You will have to satisfy her sexual urges. You'll be provided a two-bedroom apartment above the garage. The starting salary is $200,000 a year."

    The guy, wide-eyed, says, "You're bullshittin' me!"

    The social worker says, "Yeah, well... You started it."

    I hate to be a party pooper but this is *completely* tasteless and not funny at all.

    Although the stereotypical image of someone on welfare may be they are lazy and don't want to work, I think that is not the case for most people. There are lots of people who end up in situations where they need some help that don't need to be looked down upon or made to feel badly about their situation, especially with jokes like this.

    I think this thread should be removed.

    I know we had a few times we had to get help. We had to use the food shelf, things like that. I don't think we were lazy. When I finally was able to get ahead I paid back everything I had gotten in help. There are lots of people who had tragedies, had bad luck and it is not their fault they need help. Most people are only on it for a short time til they get back on their feet.

    Many of the jokes that go around are tasteless and funny!

    I don't think the stereotyping is any worse than we do to blondes, women, wives, husbands, men, etc. I usually like them all anyway.

    I saw a bumpersticker yesterday that explains it better:

    More people protest the wearing of fur than the wearing of leather. Why?
    It's easier to harrass rich women than it is motorcycle gangs.

    1 - First, furs come from mammals, and we all are mammals!

    2 - Second, leather can come from snakes or crocodiles, never mind the cow leather!

    3 - Third, most people will always find something to protest or complain about. (No wonder we're all mammals!)
