Two Framers

Two framers were nailing plywoods.

The first framer pulled nails from his pouch, sometimes nailing them and sometimes throwing them away.

The second framer asked: "hey, why are you throwing away half the nail?"

"I tell you, said the first framer, when I pull a nail out, if it points towards the house, I nail it. But if it points towards me, I throw it away."

"You idiot said the second framer. If it points towards you, it's supposed to be nailed on the other side of the plywood."

Common problem with the cheap nails made in China that you get from Home Depot, the heads are on the wrong end.

That is a old one. I remember that from the Three Stooges.
Of course with that statement I have just dated myself.

John and Jkirk, all jokes are recycled.

They say that a good stand up comic is a person who remembers funny jokes while the audience foregets them.

Spruce, good one...

Old jokes never die. Unfortunately.

Re: Two Framers

One time (when I was an apprentice plumber) I picked up my hammer to pound in a nail. When I pulled it out of my tool belt, it was oriented so the claws were pointed toward the nail.

My boss saw me, and gave me some kind of ribbing about using the hammer the wrong way. I just said, "I've never tried it that way. I thought maybe it would work better."
