How Bad Is It??

 
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.
 … 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.

I sure hope things look up in 2010.

 
I’m feeling MUCH better!

PS: About that college football championship game last night.  All I have heard and read is that Alabama would not have won if Texas quarterback Colt McCoy had not been injured on the 5th play of the game.  I say B*&%S#@*!! 
 
1. Was he coaching when Texas called that moronic ‘shovel pass’ right before the first that the Tide ran in for a touchdown?
 
2. Was he playing defense when two Alabama running backs ran for over 100 yards!!  ( First time against them this year ).
 
3. Was he the tean disciplinarian when the Long Horns were stretched and stressed into 77 yards worth of penalties including 35 yards in the first half?  Alabama had just 38 the whole game!
 
Even if healthy, McCoy would not have been on the field when Marquis Richardson ran for 49 yards nearly untouched up the middle for a first-half touchdown.
 
Football is a TEAM sport and when you lose a player, even one as good as McCoy, the rest of the team has to suck it up and play on a higher level… and not make excuses.

    Those sound like Johnny Carson goodies! I especially like the one about the guy who called the suicide hotline! Good stuff. Not following the football game but you’re right—it is a team sport—you can’t just blame one guy for a loss like that. Hope you’re feeling better and be sure to kiss all the doggies for us!
