Walter Block on the joke that is anti-trust.

He tells it in two parts:

Joke #1

Three Soviet prisoners are sitting around comparing stories. Eventually the subject turns to what crimes they committed to end up in their predicament.

The first prisoner says, "I came to work late and they accused me of cheating the State out of my labor services.

The second prisoner says, "I came to work early and they accused me of brown nosing."

The third prisoner says, "I came to work exactly on time every day without fail, and they accused me of owning a Western wristwatch."

Joke #2

Three American prisoners are sitting around comparing stories. Eventually the subject turns to what crimes they committed to end up in their predicament.

The first prisoner says, "I charged higher prices than everyone else and they accused me of profiteering and price gauging."

The second prisoner says, "I charged lower prices than everyone else and thy accused me of predatory price cutting and cut-throat competition."

The third prisoner says, "I charged the same prices as everyone else and they accused me of collusion and cartelization."
