How Bad?

I totally admit to stealing this off of Shana’s blog (Blaze ‘n’ Crochet) – but she was sweet enough to give me permission.

Since I howled over it, I figured at least someone else was bound to find it funny too :)

Soooooo, courtesy of Shana…

How Bad Is the Economy?

The economy is so bad that I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.

The economy is so bad I ordered a burger at McDonalds and the kid behind the counter asked, Can you afford fries with that?

The economy is so bad that CEOs are now playing miniature golf.

The economy is so bad if the bank returns your check marked Insufficient Funds, you call them and ask if they meant you or them.

The economy is so bad Hot Wheels and Matchbox stocks are trading higher than GM.

The economy is so bad McDonalds is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

The economy is so bad parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children’s names..

The economy is so bad a truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico .

The economy is so bad Dick Cheney took his stockbroker hunting.

The economy is so bad Motel Six won't leave the light on anymore.

The economy is so bad the Mafia is laying off judges..

The economy is so bad Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.

And finally...


Congress says they are looking into this Bernard Madoff scandal.  Oh Great!!  The guy who made $50 Billion disappear is being investigated by the people who made $9.5 Trillion disappear!

Stay tuned this week for our upcoming Battle of the Blogs!

(Or as Julie and I lovingly refer to it as: BOB)

You won’t want to miss it – cuz you guys really and truly are the stars!

So funny. My fave would be the American's sneaking over the border...

Are you and Julie gonna make us choose between the two of you for this blog battle? LOL This SO has my interest! Can't wait for "BOB" and all the details.

And, Mr. Daddy, about the hooligans in Walmart, this Red Neck chick now has a lovely new Schrade knife in my possession, and I ain't afraid to use it! lol But catch me from behind looking at printer ink, and you get a knocked over DSi display and a dumbfounded chick! On my toes from now on! LOL

Pam D said...

Hee! Oh my, I needed a good laugh.. thank you! Really, there hasn't been much good news at all this week, so keep 'em coming. And battle of the blogs, eh? All I can think of in looking at that button is that Brian would MUCH rather have something like that for TST than the one you have with the chatty chicks. Don't ya think?
