    I remember being taught a railroader’s folksong about this very joke back in the 60s. “What’s this?” says Pat, “I’m a dollar short!” And the foreman said without battin’ an eye, “You were docked for the time you were up in the sky.”

    “Drill Ye Terriers, Drill”
    Our new foreman was Gene McCann,
    By God he was a blame mean man,
    Last week a premature blast went off,
    A mile in the air went big Jim Goff.
    When next payday came around
    Jim Goff a dollar short was found.
    When he asked what for, came this reply,
    “You’ll be docked for the time
    you was up in the sky.”

    (should have known it originated in a Pat and Mike joke.)

    That’s the sort of thing, yes.
