    Question

    Arcelor-Metal Steel, feeling it was time for a shake-up, hired a new CEO and he was determined to rid the company of all slackers.

    On a tour of the facilities, the new CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business. He walked up to the guy at the wall and asked, 'How much money do you make a week?'

    A little surprised, the young man looked at him and replied, 'I make about $400 a week, Why?'

    The CEO then handed the guy $1,600 in cash and screamed, 'Here's four weeks' pay, now GET OUT and don't come back!' The guy left without saying a word to the CEO.

    Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, 'Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?'

    From across the room came a voice, 'Pizza delivery kid from Domino's.'

    How about a shorter joke?

    There were two hydrogen atoms talking to each other.
    "I think I've lost an electron," one said.
    "Are you sure?" said the second.
    "Yes, I'm positive!"...

    What! Are you crazy or something? You're talking about one of the staples of an old man's diet, especially living alone with no one around with any culinary skills more than boiling water or frying an egg...

    You can fry eggs!!?? I stick to the four basic food groups: pizza, beer, pretzels and peanuts.
