    Default Jokes

    Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the Beehive. One is from Wellington, another is from Dunedin, and the third is from Hamilton.

    All three go with a Beehive official to examine the fence. The Hamilton contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. “Well,” he says, “I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.”

    The Dunedin contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.”

    The Wellington contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the Beehive official and whispers, “$2,700.”

    The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?” The Wellington contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Dunedin to fix the fence.”

    “Done!” replies the government official.

    That is not a joke it is exactly how the system works whenever they think they can get away with it with little chance of being caught
