    This recession has hit everybody really hard...
    My neighbour got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.
    CEO's are now playing miniature golf.
    Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.
    A stripper was killed when her audience showered her with rolls of pennies while she danced.
    I saw a Mormon with only one wife.
    If the bank returns your check marked "Insufficient Funds," you call them and ask if they meant you or them.
    McDonald's is selling the 1/4 oncer.
    Angelina Jolie adopted a child from America.
    Parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children's names.
    My cousin had an exorcism but couldn't afford to pay for it, and they re-possessed her!
    A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico.
    A picture is now only worth 200 words.
    When Bill and Hillary travel together, they now have to share a room.
    The Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas is now managed by Somali pirates.
    Congress says they are looking into this Bernard Madoff scandal. Oh Great! The guy who made $50 Billion disappear is being investigated by the people who made $1.5 Trillion disappear!

    And, finally....
    I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc., I called the Suicide Hotline, and reached a call centre in Pakistan.
    When I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck.

    Haha, "a truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico!" They should be sent to North Korea where they would know what desperation for being alive and then they would make better life in America.

    Wonder any better they could do for their own life. What happen if your house on fire and you don't have a insurance for it? Life would move forward even we hate all or curse all for our own problems!
