A dedicated SIU sailor’s ship pulled into port and, as you would expect, he decided to check out the local brothels nearby.
When he got to the first one, he asked the Madam, “Is this a union house?”
“;No,I’m sorry, it isn’t.”
“;Well, if I pay you $100.00, what cut do the girls get?”;
“;The house gets $80.00 and the girls get 20.00.”;
Mightily offended at such unfair dealings, the sailor stomped off down the street in search of a more equitable, hopefully unionized shop.
His search continued until finally he reached a brothel where the Madam responded, “;Why yes sir, this IS a Union House.”;
The man asked, “;And if I pay you $100.00, what cut do the girls get?”;
“;The girls get $80.00 and the house gets $20.”;
";That’s more like it!!!quote; the sailor said. He handed the Madam $100.00, looked around the room and pointed to a stunningly attractive blonde. “;I’d like her for the night.”;
“;I’m sure you would, sir,”; said the Madam, then gesturing to an 85 year old woman in the corner, “;but Ethel here has seniority.”;
