Where do I get these jokes from? Man, I crack myself up. I've been waiting all day to do that one.

In this cartoon an apparently unemployed Donald is wandering around town singing the High-Ho song from Snow White. He comes upon a construction site and applies for the job of Riveter despite obviously having no experience in this field.

Much to his distress he begins his day of labor at the top of a zillion-foot high skyscraper (though the elevator only ascends 1 floor!) and his boss is an easily irritated man. Disaster follows as per usual but at least this one ends with Donald getting the upper hand on his beastly boss.
