Top Twelve Indicators Economy Is Bad

with 2 comments

Received this humourous list in the mail this morning from Lou, the Banana Man, a conservative Californian. Yes, Virginia, they do exist.

The top twelve indicators that the economy is bad:

12. CEO’s are now playing miniature golf.

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

10. I went to buy a toaster oven and they gave me a bank.

9. Hotwheels and Matchbox car companies are now trading higher than GM in the stock market.

8. Nobama met with small businesses – GE, Pfizer, Chrysler, Citigroup and GM, to discuss the Stimulus Package.

7. McDonalds is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

6 People in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and are learning their children’s names.

5. The most highly-paid job is now jury duty.

4. People in Africa are donating money to Americans. Mothers in Ethiopia are telling their kids, “finish your plate; do you know how many kids are starving in America ?”

3. Motel Six won’t leave the lights on.

2. The Mafia is laying off judges.

And my most favorite indicator of all.

1. If the bank returns your check marked as “insufficient funds,” you have to call them and ask if they meant you or them.

  1. God is judging America for it's sins!

    That is why the American Economy is tanked!

    America, land of Porn, Abortion, and Organized Religion. The evil empire.

    Remember, Jesus loves us, he just hates all of our sins.

  2. My favorite indicator is an old Bill Cosby line: "Times are so bad that even the people who don't plan on paying aren't buying"
