    Saw this on another forum. I got a chuckle so I thought I'd share.

    The economy is so bad that...


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

    I ordered a burger at McDonald's and the kid behind the counter asked, "Can you afford fries with that?"

    CEO's are now playing miniature golf.

    Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.

    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.

    McDonald's is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

    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.

    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. I got a call center in Pakistan , and when I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck

    And I wish you could have seen my daughter's face when I told this joke. She will be 16 Saturday, and is a dark, dishwater blonde. You could literally see the lightbulb go on about 30 seconds after I told the punch line, and she started laughing.
