Who’s doing the work in Australia?

This week’s Friday Funny comes (indirectly) from Martin.

The population of this country is 20 million.

9 million are retired.

That leaves 11 million to do the work.

There are 7 million in school, which leaves 4 million to do the work.

Of this there are 2 million employed by the federal government, leaving 2 million to do the work.

0.5 Million are in the armed forces preoccupied with finding Osama bin Laden, which leaves 1.5 million to do the work.

Take from the total the 1 million people who work for state and local Governments and that leaves 500,000 people to do the work.

At any given time there are 280,000 people in hospitals, leaving 220,000 people to do the work.

Now, there are 219,998 people in prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work.

You and me.

And there you are sitting on your rear, at your computer, reading jokes.
