Sven & Olaf worked together in a factory and both were laid off.

So . . . dey went to the Unemployment Agency togedder.

When asked his occupation, Olaf said, "Panty Stitcher. I sew da elastic on to ladies cotton panties."

The clerk looked up Panty Stitcher. Finding it classified as unskilled labor, she gave Olaf $300 a week in unemployment pay.

Sven was asked his occupation he replied, Diesel Fitter." Since Diesel Fitter was a skilled job, the ckerk gave Sven $600 a week.

When Olaf found out, he was furious! He stormed back into the Office to find out why his friend and coworker was collecting double his benefits.

The clerk explained, Panty Stitchers are unskilled and Diesel Fitters are skilled labor."

"What skill?" yelled Olaf. "I sew da elastic on da panties. Olaf puts dem over his head and says, "Yah, ~~~~DIESEL FITTER." :)

I believe this had to be one of my Dad's favorite jokes. He's been dead for nearly 13 years, and I can still hear him telling the joke.

He was "Ollie" (Olavi then Oliver), and I think it was used as an icebreaker to get the ladies to dance with him. :confused:

Yes, I also have vague recollections of hearing this before (senior moment yet again), but it still made me chuckle - a lot!!::D :D :D
