Gotta Laugh .... to keep from crying...

(I did not write this!)

The economy is so bad that I got a pre-declined credit card in the
mail.

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

The economy is so bad that CEO's are now playing miniature golf.

The economy is so bad if the bank returns your check marked
"Insufficient Funds," you call them and ask if they meant
you or them.

The economy is so bad Hot Wheels and Matchbox stocks are
trading higher than GM.

The economy is so bad McDonald's is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

The economy is so bad parents in Beverly Hills fired their
nannies and learned their childrens' names.

The economy is so bad a truckload of Americans was caught
sneaking into Mexico.

The economy is so bad Dick Cheney took his stockbroker
hunting.

The economy is so bad Motel Six won't leave the light on
anymore.

There's a big wedding in my future this weekend, and I'll be pretty busy doing flowers for the next two days. I'll catch you when I can.

LOL!

I'm sure you will make your usual beautiful flower arrangements for the wedding - see you later!

And I do hope your own economy is not as bad as your jokes!!

That was funny and so true!

I have a busy weekend of discos. A 21st birthday and a Christening. I'm sure they'd both benefit from your beautiful flower arrangements!

"The economy is so bad parents in Beverly Hills fired their
nannies and learned their childrens' names." Too funny.
Have a great wedding.

Nice way to start the weekend: laughing at the economy.

This is the first time in a while I've visited the site (usually catch you on Google Reader) and I love the heading photo.

Darlene said...

Very funny in a sad sort of way.

I'm looking forward to the photos of your flower arrangements.

Granny Annie said...

All are great and all are believable except for the Beverly Hills parents learning their children's names!

Good wedding to you!

The economy may be really bad but I don't see anyone starving... as they do in other areas. We have a lot to be thankful for even in these low times.

Nancy said...

I know what you mean, Judy. I called "Dial a Prayer" and they hung up on me.

Doreen said...
