How bad is it really?

  • Banks are now sending out pre-declined credit card notices
  • When I hit the drive thru the other day the kid in the window asked me "can you afford fries with this?"
  • The latest big business deals are now being made on the 18th hole at Bert's mini-golf.
  • If your bank returns your check marked "Insufficient Funds" you have to call them to clarify whether they meant you or the bank.
  • Stock prices are higher for Hot Wheels and Matchbox than GM.
  • Parents in Beverly Hills and Hollywood are firing their nannies and learning their kids' names.
  • A truckload of Americans were caught trying to sneak into Mexico.
  • Dick Cheney took his broker hunting.
  • Motel Six is no longer leaving the light on for you.
  • The Mob is laying off judges.
  • Congress is investigating Bernie Madoff.  Yes, that's right.  The man who made $50 billion disappear is being investigated by the men who made $15 trillion disappear.
  • A buddy was so depressed about the state of the country and the economy that he called the suicide prevention line.  He was connected to a call center in Pakistan.  When he told them he was having suicidal thoughts they got very excited and asked if he could drive a truck.

Most are funny, but I think the last one is in poor taste.

I agree about the last one. Otherwise funny because right on the edge of truth!

The final one probably is in poor taste (along with the one about Dick-the-trigger Cheney). But I laughed out loud anyway.

Thank you, I needed this kind of humor right now...

Yeah, the one in poor taste was the best!

God has graced me with an abundance of poor taste, and I thought that the last one was the best, followed by #6.

Ok, maybe I need to take back my earlier comment. Shared the last one with family members and they "about fell out" laughing as we say down South.
