Out of Work

The following conversation took
place one morning between a wife and her now ex-husband. They were discussing
government cost cuts they had recently read about in the paper.

said, while reading the newspaper, “it looks like our government is going
to cut overhead and trim down the military forces. They are going to retire six

report it,” he explained.  “By the way, how did you find out
about it?”

“The pig squealed,” the
officer replied.
