Does Worker's Comp cover this?
A-1 construction company is putting up a skyscraper
in downtown New York. It's Hard-hat Joey's first day
working on the fifty-third floor. At about 11:30, after
a morning of riveting, he starts to feel nature calling.
He finds his foreman and asks "Hey boss jew think
I can go down and take a pee real quick."
"Hey Joey, ya know I can't do dat" his boss replies,
"It'll take ya 10 minutes to get down, and another ten
to get back up. That's 20 minutes I just can't spare.
Ya know we gotta get this job done by next week."
"I tell ya what" says the foreman. "I'll stick this here
plank out da window, you go out dere and uh do
what ya gotta do."
Joey inches his way out on to the plank, unzips his
pants and starts to pee. Meanwhile the phone rings
inside. The foreman, forgetting he was holding the
plank for Joey and not wanting to miss the call runs
over to answer it. Needless to say Joey falls and dies.
The next week there is an inquiry into Joey's death
and the foreman gets brought up on charges of
murder. The prosecution has one witness that was
on the 25th floor. When asked to give his view of
what happened, the witness looks around, leans
forward and says, "You know what I think? I think it
had to do with sex. Maybe they were quarreling lovers."
The foreman incensed, stands up and yells, "What the
hell kinda nonsense is that?"
"Well," says the witness, "when the deceased passed
the 25th floor he was holding his dick and screaming
'where'd that cock sucker go?!'"
