A very large, old, building was being torn down in Chicago to make room
for a new skyscraper. Due to its proximity to other buildings it could not
be imploded and had to be dismantled floor by floor.
While working on the 49th floor, two construction workers found a skeleton
in a small closet behind the elevator shaft. They decided that they should
call the police. When the police arrived they directed them to the closet
and showed them the skeleton fully clothed and standing upright. They
said, "This could be Jimmy Hoffa or somebody really important."
Two days went by and the construction workers couldn't stand it any more,
they had to know who they had found. They called the police and said, "We
are the two guys who found the skeleton in the closet and we want to know
if it was Jimmy Hoffa or somebody important."
The police said, "It's not Jimmy Hoffa, but it was somebody kind of
"Well, who was it?"
"The 1956 Blonde National Hide-and-Seek Champion."
