Diesel Fitter Job

Ole and Lars who worked together were both laid off, so off they were to the unemployment office. Asked his occupation, Ole said, "Panty stitcher. I sew the elastic onto cotton panties." The clerk looked up panty stitcher. Finding it classified as unskilled labor, she gave Ole $300 a week unemployment pay.
Lars was asked his occupation. "Diesel fitter," he replied. Since diesel fitters was a skilled job the clerk gave him $600 a week.

When Ole finds out he is furious. He stormed back to find out why Lars, his friend and co-worker was collecting double his pay. The clerk explained, "Panty stitchers were unskilled and diesel fitters were skilled labor." "What skill?" yelled Ole. "I sew the elastic on. He pulls on it and says, 'Yep, diesel fitter.'"

Re: Diesel Fitter Job

Ah, I miss all the Swen & Ole jokes or Ole & Lina jokes I used to hear in Minnesota. Similar to the Beudreax and Thibadeaux jokes from my Louisiana friends here.

Re: Diesel Fitter Job

Freddie and Pierre...
Freddie is working up on the roof.
Pierre is on the ground watching him.
Freddie takes a nail out of his nail apron, looks at it, and pounds it into the roof. Then he takes out a nail, looks at it and throws it down on the ground. He continues, seemingly randomly, looking at a nail and either driving it into the roof or throwing it to the ground.

Pierre yells: "Freddie! What are you doing?"
Freddie: " I'm fix'n the roof."

Pierre: "No, I mean, why do you look at the nails and sometimes pound 'em into the roof, and other times throw 'em to the ground?!"

Freddie: " Well, that's easy to 'splain, iffin the heads on the right end of the nail, I 'kin pound it in. But iffin the heads on the wrong end of the nail, I can't pound it in, so I throw it away."

Pierre is beside himself, thinking how stupid Freddie must be.

Pierre yells: "Freddie, you idiot, you gotta save those nails. Theyz for the other side of the roof! "

Ice Fishin

Freddie decides to go out ice fishin.

Pierre comes along on his snowmobile, and there's Freddie with a casting rod casting a lure out onto the ice, reeling it in, and casting it again.

Pierre: "Freddie! Whatcha doin' ?"

Freddie: " Can'cha see? I'm ice fishin."

Pierre: "Freddie, you're dumber 'n a bag of hammers. You can't catch any fish ice fishin' that way."

Freddie: "What should I do?"

Pierre: "Well, get on back of the snowmobile, and we'll troll."
