The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Second second thoughts

Last month you read here about Oklahoma's new collective-bargaining law, which allows municipal employees in cities with populations of 35,000 and over to unionize.

Cities have been challenging the law, and yesterday Enid, arguing that the arbitrary population threshold was constitutionally invalid, prevailed; District Judge Daniel Owens ruled that the law was indeed "unconstitutional as passed." Enid employees issued a statement to the effect that the city should recognize their organization effort, even without the sanction of law.

Representative Marian Cooksey (R-Edmond) has introduced a bill which would repeal the law outright.

A union man is out on the town one night looking for some action. He stops by a local brothel, and the madame brings out the line of girls and asks him to choose one.

He tells the madame, "I'm a union supporter, and before I pick one, I want to make sure the girls aren't being taken advantage of. What's your take?"

The madame says, "I'm not going to lie to you. The house gets 90%, and the girls get 10%."

The man leaves in disgust.

He stops at the next brothel and goes inside. The madame brings out the girls and asks him to choose one.

He tells the madame, "I'm a union supporter, and before I pick one I want to make sure the girls aren't being taken advantage of. What's your take?"

The madame says, "I'm not going to lie to you. The house gets 80%, and the girls get 20%."

The man leaves in disgust.

He stops at the next brothel and goes inside. Before the madame can even say anything, he interjects, "I'm a union supporter..."

The madame interrupts, "Say no more. You'll be happy to know that the house gets 10%, and the girls get 90%."

The guy is excited that he finally found a shop that treats it's employees right. He points to this beautiful buxom blonde with big tits and says, "I want her!".

The madame points to this rather rotund older woman with a mustache and says, "Sorry. Big Ethel here has seniority."
