Friday Joke: Wheelbarrow Race


A strong young man at a construction site was bragging that he could defeat anyone in a contest of strength. He made a special case of making fun of one of the older workers.

After several minutes, the older worker had enough.

“Why don’t you put your money where your mouth is,” he said. “I bet you a hundred dollars that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that building that you won’t be able to wheel back.”

“You’re on, old man,” the younger man replied. “Let’s see you do it.”

The old man reached out and grabbed a near by construction wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said,

“All right, get in.”
