    The recession has hit everybody really hard...

    My neighbour got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.

    Wives are having sex with their husbands because they can't afford batteries.

    CEO's are now playing miniature golf.

    Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.

    A stripper was killed when her audience showered her with rolls of pennies while she danced.

    I saw a Mormon with only one wife.

    If the bank returns your check marked "Insufficient Funds," you call them and ask if they meant you or them.

    McDonald's is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

    Angelina Jolie adopted a child from America.

    Parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children's names.

    My cousin had an exorcism but couldn't afford to pay for it, and they re-possessed her!

    A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico.

    A picture is now only worth 200 words.

    When Bill and Hillary travel together, they now have to share a room.

    The Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas is now managed by Somali pirates.

    And, finally....

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

    Not to worry, Obama is starting a new bridge building program so Americans will have something to live under.

    The shovels are all ready for someone to use but the economy is so good that cannot find someone to use those shovels.

    Oh the economy is awesome as MSNBC says so everyday. Isn't everybody happy? I know banks and Wall street is and it is almost Christmas so the bonuses will be coming out. I can't wait to get my $.10 bonus.

    We need a count down calendar til these fools leave the White House. I am counting the days now, seems like a long time but I know as I get older, time goes faster...............

    Good post........ I can drive a truck...............

    Country music had to replace the 12 bar shuffle with a 6 bar stumble.
    The Fed lowered the prime rate to minus 6% and still no takers.
    The Dow jumped up to 22,000 on the news that the employment rate was down to 2%.
    Made in China stickers are now made in the USA.
    High tech energy jobs now includes the workers are Red Bull.

    OK, not too good but at least I made them up.

    Times are so hard that we had to replace the bald eagle with a circling vulture. Canada has announced that they're beefing up their border and enforcing tougher immigration laws on illegals
