Old Folk Jokes
I was sitting in a cafe and started talking to this old timer. I asked him what he did for a living. Well, he said, this was a long time ago but at the time I was a diesel fitter. Well he said to his new friend. I don't think we had diesels in those years. His friend, oh, yah we did. I worked in a woman pantaloon factory, I will hold them up when they got off the sewing machine, And I was the one who said. Yah, deisel will fit her.
