But I've yet to find anyone that knows the answer to the age old question.....

What did Barney Rubble do for a living? In the shows opening you always see him dropping Fred off at work but then where did he go? In one episode he was Mr. Slate'* nephew and worked at the quarry but things didn't work out, in another episode Barney & Fred opened a diner- but that too didn't work out.

I've heard other people say he "did" Wilma

Does anyone know the answer?

It would certainly explain why he was always giggleing.....
