The Economy is So Bad...

The economy is so bad:

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

... I ordered a burger at McDonalds and the kid behind the counterasked, "Can you afford fries with that?"

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

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

... Parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children's names.

... A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico.

... Dick Cheney took his stockbroker hunting.

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

... The Mafia is laying off judges.

... Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.
