    Default Stimulus Check Humor

    STIMULUS CHECK 2010

    Sometime this year, we taxpayers will again receive another 'Economic
    Stimulus' payment.

    This is indeed a very exciting program, and I'll explain it by
    Using a Q & A format:


    Q. What is an 'Economic Stimulus' payment ?

    A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.


    Q.. Where will the government get this money ?

    A. From taxpayers.


    Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?

    A. Only a smidgen of it.


    Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?

    A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a
    High-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.


    Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?

    A. Shut up.


    Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. Economy by
    Spending your stimulus check wisely:

    * If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka .

    * If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.

    * If you purchase a computer, it will go to India, Taiwan or China .

    * If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico ,
    Honduras and Guatemala ..

    * If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea .


    * If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .


    * If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go
    To management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.


    Instead, keep the money in America by:

    1) Spending it at yard sales, or

    2) Going to ball games, or

    3) Spending it on prostitutes, or

    4) Beer or

    5) Tattoos.

    (These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S. )

    Conclusion:

    Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard
    Sale and drink beer all day !

    No need to thank me, I'm just glad I could be of help...

    This thread is why I come here...

    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    It's meant to be humorous... Kind of like satire.
