Boudreaux and Thibodeaux worked together in a Louisiana factory... and both
were laid off. So.....they went to the Unemployment Office together.

Asked his occupation, Boudreaux said, 'Panty stitcher. I sew da elastic onto
da ladies cotton panties.' The clerk looked up panty stitcher. Finding it
classified as unskilled labor, she gave Boudreaux $300 a week in
unemployment compensation.

Thibodeaux, when asked his occupation replied, 'Diesel fitter.' The clerk
looked up diesel fitter.... and it was classified as a skilled job. So, the
clerk gave Thibodeaux $600 a week in unemployment compensation.

When Boudreaux found this out, he was furious! He stormed back into the
office to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting double his
benefits. The clerk explained, 'Panty stitchers are unskilled labor and
diesel fitters are skilled labor. Wut skill?' yelled Boudreaux. 'I sew da
elastic on da panties. Thibodeaux puts dem over his head and says,
'Yeah......... DIESEL FITTER'.

Thanks for the laugh - though it would be even funnier if that was the way UE benefits were actually determined LOL
