View From Purcell, Oklahoma: Oilfield Humor

Oilfield Humor

Oilfield Humor

A new hire roughneck died and went to Heaven to await His Judgment, while waiting, an Angel said to him, 

“Before you meet with God,  I should tell you — we’ve looked over your life, and to be honest you really didn’t do anything particularly good or bad. 

We’re not really sure what to do with you. Can you tell us anything you did that can help us make a decision?”

The roughneck thought for a moment and replied, “Yeah, I was feeling pretty tough and confident in myself because I was just hired to be a part of a Drilling Crew, I was driving along and came upon a lady who was being harassed by a group of thugs. So I pulled over, got out a wrench, and went up to the leader of the thugs. He was a big, muscular guy with a ring pierced through his lip. Well, I tore the  ring out of his lip, and told him he and his gang had better stop bothering this lady or they would have to deal with me!”

“Wow that’s impressive, “When did this happen?” the Angel asked. 

“About three minutes ago,” came the reply.

Than, It took me a few seconds to "get that."  Clearly it did not work out so well with him and the thugs.  Enjoy this blessed day!

Great story.  It was worth the read.  Thanks for the laugh.  Did I tell the one about the guy who was going to give us cheap quality health care . . . .Oh wait that is not a joke, at least not a good one.
