Received this joke by email today:
Two blonde guys were working for the city works department. One would dig a hole and the other would follow behind him and fill the hole in. They worked up one side of the street, then down the other, then moved on to the next street, working furiously all day without rest, one guy digging a hole, the other guy filling it in again. An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn't understand what they were doing,so he asked the hole digger, "I'm impressed by the effort you two are putting into your work, but I don't get it -- why do you dig a hole, only to have your partner follow behind and fill it up again?" The hole digger wiped his brow and sighed, "Well, I suppose it probably looks odd because we're normally a three man team. But today, the guy who plants the trees called in sick."

Do you think it is funny? I usually denounce trite political correctness, but here are a people that never seem to get any recognition that they are a suffering minority.

It's another put down of blondes, of course, but MUCH more significantly, it's a complete put down of manual labourers, whom are absolutely never given ANY celebration.

I'm sure the joke is enjoyed by the usual bunch of soft-skinned, car-driving, TV-goggling, mobile-phone-chatting, office-working, smugly ignorant twits that Western society nurtures and pampers like battery chickens.

I'll start posting jokes that I do like, for a bit of balance.
