Sound Financial and Social Advice? (a joke)

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

WHo would have believed it !!!!!!!!!!

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you
would have $49.00 today!

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would have
$33.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you
would have $0.00 today.

But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the
beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for the recycling refund, you would
have received $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily &

It is called the 401-Keg.

And as a bonus...

A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a
year. Another study found that on average Americans drink 22 gallons of
alcohol a year.
That means that the average American gets about 41 miles to the gallon!

Makes you damned proud to be an American!
