To who it may concern I hope you like this. I got this joke off an old show from England called "Not the Nine O'Clock News". It was originally a skit, but telling it as a joke has worked well between friends and fellow students. A truck driver who has been delivering radio-active waste for the local reactor begins to feel sick after a few years on the job. He then seeks to be compensated for this ailment. Appearing at the workers' compensation department, he is interviewed by an assesor. The assesor asks several questions in relation to the claim. Assesor: I see you work with radio-active materials and wish to claim compensation. Trucker: Yeah, I feel really sick. Assesor: Alright then, Does your employer take measures to protect you from radiation poisoning? Trucker: Yeah, he gives me a lead suit to wear on the job. Assesor: And what about the cabin in which you drive? Trucker: Oh yeah. That's lead lined, all lead lined. Assessor: What about the waste itself? Where is that kept? Trucker: Oh, the stuff is held in a lead container, all lead. Assesor: Let me see if I get this straight. You wear a lead suit, sit in a lead-lined cabin and the radio-active waste is kept in a lead container. Trucker: Yeah, thats right all lead Assesor: Then I can't see how you could claim against him for radiation poisoning. Trucker: I'm not. I claiming for lead poisoning.
