Skit from an old show from England called "Not the Nine O'Clock News".
A truck driver who has been delivering radio-active waste for the local
reactor begins to feel sick after a few years on the job.
He then seeks to be compensated for this ailment.
Appearing at the workers' compensation department, he is interviewed by
an assesor. The assesor asks several questions in relation to the claim.

Assesor: I see you work with radio-active materials and wish to claim

Trucker: Yeah, I feel really sick.

Assesor: Alright then, Does your employer take measures to protect you
from radiation poisoning?

Trucker: Yeah, he gives me a lead suit to wear on the job.

Assesor: And what about the cabin in which you drive?

Trucker: Oh yeah. That's lead lined, all lead lined.

Assessor: What about the waste itself? Where is that kept?

Trucker: Oh, the stuff is held in a lead container, all lead.

Assesor: Let me see if I get this straight. You wear a lead suit, sit in
a lead-lined cabin and the radio-active waste is kept in a lead

Trucker: Yeah, thats right all lead

Assesor: Then I can't see how you could claim against him for radiation

Trucker: I'm not. I claiming for lead poisoning.
