Friday Funny

Here's a new take on an old joke, and another short one for some extra funny.
*******************************************
If you had purchased $1000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49 today. If you had purchased $1000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would have $33 today. If you purchased $1000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you would have $0 today.

But if you had purchased $1000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund, you would have $214 today.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily and recycle.

*******************************************
A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.

That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon. Makes you proud to be an American.

Have a great weekend.
