Radical Joke #3

Who's the Boss?

A group of workers enter the boss’s office and tell him that they have just taken over the factory. “You can’t”, says the boss. “I own it”

“And how did you come to own it?” asks one of the workers.

“It was left to me by my father”, says the boss.

“How did he get it?” asks the worker.

“He got it from his father”, says the boss.

“And he?” asks the worker.

“From his father”, says the boss.

“And he?” persists the worker.

“He fought for it”, says the capitalist in a burst of familial pride.

“Well”, say the workers, all together this time, “We’ll fight you for it”.

Radical Joke #2

FabricaRusia

A capitalist is walking through his factory with a friend.

Friend asks, “What did you tell that man just now?”

“I told him to work faster”, answers the capitalist.

“How much do you pay him?” asks the friend.

“Fifteen dollars a day” answers the capitalist.

“Where do you get the money to pay him?” asks the friend.

“I sell products”, answers the capitalist.

“Who makes the products?” asks the friend.

“He does”, answers the capitalist.

“How many products does he make in a day?” asks the friend.

“Fifty dollars worth”, answers the capitalist.

“Then”, concludes the friend, “Instead of you paying him, he pays you thirty-five dollars a day to tell him to work faster”.

“Huh”, and the capitalist quickly adds, “Well, I own the machines”.

“How did you get the machines?” asks the friend.

“I sold products and bought them”, answers the capitalist.

“And who made those products?” asks his friend.

To which the capitalist can only respond…”Shut up! He might hear you”.
