The Economy is so bad that…

The economy is so bad that …

 … I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.

 … I ordered a burger at McDonald’s & the kid behind the counter asked,
 "Can you afford fries with that?"

 … CEOs are now playing miniature golf.

 … if the bank returns a check marked "Insufficient Funds," you call them & ask if they meant you or them.

 … Hot Wheels & Matchbox stocks are trading higher than GM.

 … parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies & learned their children’s names.

 … a truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico .

 … Dick Cheney took his stockbroker hunting.

 … Motel Six won’t leave the light on anymore.

 … the Mafia is laying off judges.

 … Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.

 I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc., I called the Suicide Lifeline. I got a call center in Pakistan & when I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited
& asked if I could drive a truck.

"After a certain age, if you don’t wake up aching somewhere….you may be
dead."


Come on, ya gotta laugh about it! BIG HUGS, Steph
