It’s Friday! Smile!

I thought maybe another movie tonight, splurge on a pizza … but then I saw this and thought, naw.  Probably not.  The movie, absolutely, but the pizza?  Not so much!

Have you had a good chuckle lately?  We here in IL have been laughing our butts off!

How the Government Works

The White House Fence

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in DC: One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee and the third, is from Florida.

All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The Florida contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Chicago contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, "$2,700."

The official, incredulous, says, "You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"

The Chicago contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence."

"Done!" replies the government official. And that, my friends, is how government contracting works!


Oh!  Before I forget, do any of you Twitter?  If you do, say hello!  I’m DarcsFalcon, of course!  ;) 

And how was your week?  Any weekend plans?

    My week sucked, like most weeks. But my weekend should be better. I don’t think I’ll be working on Saturday. Finally. Tonight, taking a very special lady out for dinner. Tomorrow, going to a Christmas party hosted by my brother and sister. And Sunday, avoiding my chores, like every Sunday.

    Sorry your week sucked. Can’t be too bad though, if you’re taking a special lady to dinner, right? I hope you have a nice time there, and at the Christmas party tomorrow. Egg nog, woo! 😀

    Okay, now I’m working tomorrow. This weekend is gonna suck!

    I’m sorry.


  3. That last one was so true it wasn’t funny. But it was so funny because it was true. I’m so confused.

    My week was pretty good. ANY week would be pretty good after last week. Feeling better every day.

    Thanks for your comment on my latest chapter. 🙂

    You’re confused? Imagine how we feel living in this muck! LOL Par for the course here! 😉 I’m so glad you’re feeling better – I’ve been worried about you. *hugs*


  4. Hey beautiful! How are things in the state of incarceration? Week sucked really bad but going to in-laws for a birthday this weekend to watch the Steelers work over the Ravens. And of course more writing!

    Hey handsome! LOL Things here are in a state of denial, it seems. I watched videos of people, and then I’m told they never said what they said. The Chicago Way. Sorry your week sucked, but at least you have a nice party to look forward to, and football!! That ought to make up for some, right? 😀


  5. Cute video! Thanks for the entertainment this morning!

    Glad you liked it sweetie. Be sure to keep an eye on your pizza guy! 😉


  6. That joke is SOOO off. That should’ve been a CHICAGO fence guy, not a New York one. Pff. Don’t these people read the news?

    I agree. I changed it. 🙂
