Weekly Joke
  16 March 2006

Municipal workers

There were two guys working for the city. One would dig a hole, the other would follow behind him and fill the hole in. They worked 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 appreciate the effort you are putting into your work, but what's the story? You dig a hole and your partner follows behind and fills it up again."

The hole digger wiped his brow and sighed, "Eish, normally we are a three-man team, but the guy who plants the trees, he is sick today!"

Immigrants in S.A.

A Zimbabwean arrives in Jo'burg as a new immigrant in South Africa.

He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. South African, for letting me in this country, and giving me free housing, food, free medical care, affirmative action job and free education!"

But the passer-by says, "You are mistaken, I am a Nigerian. I'm just here for the free medical care"

The man goes on and encounters another passer-by. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in South Africa!"

The person says, "I'm not South African, I'ma from Mozambique. I'ma just here for the free housing"

The new arrival walks further and the next person he sees he stops, shakes hands and says, "Thank you for the wonderful South Africa!"

That person puts up his hand and says, "I am from Botswana, I am not a South African ...I'm just here for the free education"

He finally sees a lady and asks suspiciously, "Are you a South African?
She says, "No, I am from Ghana!"

So he is puzzled and asks her, "Where are all the south Africans?"

The Ghana lady looks at her watch, shrugs, and says......."Probably at work!"
