    Apologies if this has already been posted...

    The economy is so bad that:

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

    2. I ordered a burger at McDonald's and the kid behind the counter
    asked, "Can you afford fries with that?"

    3. CEO's are now playing miniature golf.

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

    5. Hot Wheels and Matchbox stocks are trading higher than GM.

    6. McDonald's is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

    7. Parents in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Beverly Hills</st1:City></st1:place> fired their nannies and learned their
    children's names.

    8. A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Mexico</st1:country-region></st1:place> .

    9. Dick Cheney took his stockbroker hunting.

    10. Motel Six won't leave the light on anymore.

    11. The Mafia is laying off judges.

    12. Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.

    13. 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 $1.5 Trillion disappear!

    14. 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 Lifeline. I got a call center in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Pakistan</st1:country-region></st1:place>,and when I told
    them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive
    a truck!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
