A bloke calls the musicians' union to get a quotation for a six-piece band for a wedding.


The rep says: "Off the top of my head, about two thousand pounds". He says: "WHAT? FOR MUSIC?"


The rep responds: "I'll tell you what. Call the plumbers' union and ask for six plumbers to work


from 6 to 12 o'clock  on a Saturday night. Whatever they charge you, we'll work for half."


"I get your point," he said.
