Now, This Couple…

…must have had an interesting past fourteen years together.

A Polish man got the shock of his life when he visited a brothel and spotted his wife among the establishment’s employees. Polish tabloid Super Express said the woman had been making some extra money on the side while telling her husband she worked at a store in a nearby town.

“I was dumfounded. I thought I was dreaming,” the husband told the newspaper Wednesday.

The couple, married for 14 years, are now divorcing, the newspaper reported.

So the husband, who visits brothels, is appalled that his wife works at one, and his wife is appalled that her husband visits them? I mean, is this an uncontested divorce, or a plaintiff and defendant affair?

I admit to being just a bit confused, as one would seem to be the Yin to the other’s Yang. The first thing that came to my mind was the foundation of a slightly more liberal remake of “Escape” (The Pina Colada Song).

This may sound a bit redundant, but if it weren’t for people, there would be no comedy.

Cheap Labor

This arrived in an email forward and I thought I’d share it.

The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor.” Take, for example, an illegal Mexican who sneaks in here with his wife and five children. He takes a job for five or six dollars an hour. At that wage with six dependents he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free. He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent, food stamps, and free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care. His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school, and require bi-lingual teachers and books that taxpayers provide. He doesn’t have to worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.
Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins, and printed material. He cannot be fired, harassed, or sued. He and his family receive the equivalent of $20 to $30 an hour in benefits, while working Americans are lucky to have $5 or $6 an hour left after paying their bills and his, to say nothing of paying for increased crime, graffiti, and trash cleanup.
Cheap labor? My ass!
