    For a couple years I've been blaming it on iron poor blood, lack of vitamins, dieting and a dozen other maladies. Now I found out the real reason. I'm tired because I'm overworked.

    The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work.

    There are 85 million in school, which leave 48 million to do the work.

    Of this, there are 29 million employed by the federal government.

    This leaves 19 million to do the work.

    Four million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 15 million to do the work.

    Guess you were too tired to post the whole thing:

    For a couple of years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep,
    not enough sunshine, too much pressure from my job,
    earwax build-up, poor blood or anything else I could think of.

    But now I found out the real reason:
    I'm tired because I'm overworked.

    Here's why: The population of this country is 273 million.
    140 million are retired,
    which leaves 133 million to do the work.

    There are 85 million in school,
    which leaves 48 million to do the work.

    Of this, there are 29 million employed by the federal government,
    which leaves 19 million to do the work.

    2.8 million are in the armed forces
    preoccupied with killing Bin Laden,
    which leaves 16.2 million to do the work.

    Take from that total the 14,800,000 people
    who work for state and city governments
    and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.

    At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals,
    which leaves 1,212,000 to do the work.

    As of today, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.
    That leaves JUST TWO PEOPLE to do the work...

    YOU and ME!!



    And there you are sitting on your butt,
