July joke

Clipped this out of a newspaper a while ago:

Profitable Painters

Pete and Jim were partners in a profitable painting-contracting business. Unfortunately, the two weren't entirely honest - they regularly mixed their paint with water.

One day, Jim's conscience started to get the best of him as they painted a poor widow's house. The next day Jim told Pete he just couldn't skimp on the paint anymore.

"Don't quit now," Pete begged. "A few more jobs and we can retire."

However, Jim refused to change his mind.

"Pete, I just can't do it," said Jim. "Last night an angel appeared before me and said, 'Repaint, repaint... you thinner!'"
