from: Edward Dangoor

An old, coloured woman was applying for a new position. When asked why she left her last place she said:

"Yessum dey paid good wages, but it was the most awful place I ever seen. Dey plays a game called "bridge", and last night was a lot of folks dere. As I was preparing refreshments, I heard a man say:

"lay down and let me see what you got"

Then annuder man say: "I got strength but no length"

Then annuder man say to a lady: "Take your hand off my trick"

I near dropped dead when a lady say: "You forced jumped me twice when you didn't even have a raise"

Annuder woman was talking about her honour.

Well, I just got my hat and coat and as I was leaving, I hope to die if one of dem didn't say: "Well, I guess I'll go home now, dis is de last rubber".
