Employment Joke

Canucks fans could probably use a little bit of humor to cheer ourselves up after last night's drubbing. My wife sent me a joke this morning that I'll let you read. Enjoy. And cheer up.

We are in trouble...
The population of this country is 30 million.
16 million are retired.
That leaves 14 million to do the work.
There are 8.5 million in school.
Which leaves 5.5 million to do the work.

Of this there are 4 million employed by the federal government. Leaving 1.5 million to do the work.
200,000 are in the armed forces
Which leaves 1.3 million to do the work.

Take from that total the 1,160,000 people who work for province and city
Governments. And that leaves 140,000 to do the work.
At any given time there are 39,800 people in hospitals.
Leaving 100,200 to do the work.

Now, there are 100,198 people in prisons.
That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me.
And there you are,
Sitting on your ass,
At your computer, reading jokes.
Nice. Real nice.
