Joke of the day
Sanders 2020

He and his boss are the consummate Heyoka/Contrarian. I wonder if we can get one of them to come here and replace "Q", who has been faltering lately? Not only are they original, but they are worth a barrel of laughs. :lol:

Sure, invite them, but keep Q, he is much more versatile and they are short of entertainment values too....only destructive.

Here's a truly heartwarming story about the bond formed
between a little 5-year-old girl and some construction workers that will make
you believe that we all can make a difference when we give a child the
gift of our time.

A young family moved into a house, next to a vacant lot.
One day a construction crew turned up to start building a
house on the empty lot.

The young family's 5-year-old daughter naturally took an
interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each day
observing the workers.

Eventually the construction crew, all of them
"gems-in-the-rough," more or less, adopted her as a kind of project mascot.

They chatted with her, let her sit with them while they had
coffee and lunch breaks, and gave her little jobs to do here and there
to make her feel important.

At the end of the first week, they even presented her with a
pay envelope containing ten dollars.

The little girl took this home to her mother who suggested
that she take her ten dollars "pay" she'd received to the bank the next
day to start a savings account.

When the girl and her mom got to the bank, the teller was
equally impressed and asked the little girl how she had come by her
very own pay check at such a young age.

The little girl proudly replied, "I worked last week with a
real construction crew building the new house next door to us."

"Oh my goodness gracious," said the teller, "and will you be
working on the house again this week, too?"

The little girl replied, "I will, if those assholes at
Lowe's ever deliver the damn sheet rock".

Ole and Sven are discussing how to dig a good hole for the outhouse.

"Well," says Ole, " I dig a real big hole and den I move da shack over it and I sit down on the bench and I let one drop. Den I count a-one, a- two, a- three and den I hear it plop and I know it's good."

"Yeah, I do da same ting," says Sven. "I sit down and let one go and den I count a-one, a-two, a-three...a-four, a-five, a-six.... Damn! It's stuck in my suspenders again!"

Question: what is the Joke of the Day doing in the Economics Section? I realize that the Keynesian Superstition is indeed a joke. However, what their ideas do to the economy, are nothing to joke about. S5

Saw this on a comments letter from Drudge: via Breitbart via Limbaugh.

John (magnus) Wrote:... It's a slow day in the small town of Pumphandle and the streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody is living on credit. A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel, and lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs to pick one for the night. As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher. (Stay with this..... and pay attention) The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt to the pig farmer. The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his supplier, the Co-op. The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer her "services" on credit. The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel Owner. The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the traveler will not suspect anything At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs,states that the rooms are not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves. No one produced anything. No one earned anything. However, the whole town now thinks that they are out of debt and there is a false atmosphere of optimism and glee.

And that, my friends, is how a "government stimulus package" works!
