Sven the Diesel Fitter

   Sven and Ole worked together and both were laid off, so off they went 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 classed as unskilled labor, she gave him $300 a week unemployment pay.

   Sven was asked his occupation.  “Diesel fitter,” he replied.  Since diesel fitter was a skilled job, the clerk gave Sven $600 a week.

   When Ole found out, he was furious.  He stormed back in to the office to find out why 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 the panties, Sven pulls them down on his head and says, ‘Yah, diesel fitter.’”
