An Italian, and Scotsman and a Chinese fellow are hired at a construction site.

The foreman points out a huge pile of sand and says to the Italian guy "You're in charge of sweeping."

To the Scotsman he says "You're in charge of shoveling."

And to the Chinese guy, "You're in charge of supplies."

He then says "Now, I have to leave for a little while. I expect you guys to make a dent in that there pile."

So the foreman goes away for a couple hours, and when he returns, the pile of sand is untouched.

He says to the Italian, "Why didn't you sweep any of it?"

The Italian replies in a heavy accent, "I didn't have a broom. You said the Chinese a guy was in a charge of supplies, but he disappeared and I coulda no find him."

Then the foreman turns to the Scotsman and asks why he didn't shovel.

The Scotsman replies in his heavy brogue, "Aye, ye did lad. But I counna get meself a shovel. Ye left the Chinese guy in charge of supplies, but I counna fin' him."

The foreman is really angry now, and storms off toward the pile of sand looking for the Chinese guy... Just then, the Chinese guy springs out from behind the pile of sand and yells, "SUPPLIES!

Sorry about that. I'll try to do better. Receiving and sending jokes is like a roller coaster ride. Sometimes the good ones just don't come in.

You should see the ones that I don't pass along.

Have a great day!!!

FWIW Glockrunner, I found both the joke and Steve's response to be great!

Keep it up! :)

Four workers were discussing how smart their dogs were.
The first was an engineer, who said his dog could do math with calculations.
His dog was named T-Square, and he told him to get some paper and draw a
square, a circle, and a triangle, which the dog did with no sweat.

The accountant said he thought his dog was better. This dog was named Slide
Rule. He told him to fetch a dozen cookies, bring them back, and divide
them into piles of three, which he did with no problem.

The chemist said that was good, but he felt his dog was better. His dog was
named Measure. He was told to get a quart of milk and pour seven ounces
into a ten-ounce glass. The dog did this with no problem.

All three of the men agreed this was very good, and their dogs were equally smart. They all turned to the construction worker and asked, "What can your dog do?

The construction worker called his dog, whose name was Coffee Break, and said, "Show these fellows what you can do!"
Coffee Break went over and ate the cookies, drank the milk, crapped on the paper, screwed the other three dogs and claimed he injured his back. While doing so, filed a grievance for unsafe working conditions, applied for workman's compensation and then clocked out early on sick leave.;f
