If you can’t laugh at the economy, what CAN you laugh at?
As someone who’s easily amused by rather silly things, I felt it was timely to share these. They’ve been around in emails, so you may have seen them; if not, enjoy! 😀
For all of you with any money left, be aware of the next expected mergers so that you can get in on the ground floor and make some BIG bucks. Watch for these consolidations in 2009:
1.) Hale Business Systems, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Fuller Brush, and W. R. Grace Co. will merge and become: Hale, Mary, Fuller, Grace.
2.) PolygramRecords, Warner Bros., and ZestaCrackers join forces and become: Poly, Warner, Cracker.
3.) 3M will merge with Goodyear and become: MMMGood.
4.) ZippoManufacturing, AudiMotors, Dofasco, and Dakota Mining will merge and become:ZipAudiDoDa.
5.) FedEx is expected to join its competitor, UPS, and become: FedUP.
6.) Fairchild Electronics and Honeywell Computers will become: Fairwell Honeychild.
7.) Grey Poupon and Docker Pants are expected to become: PouponPants.
8.) Knotts Berry Farm and the National Organization of Women will become: Knott NOW!
OK, that last one may be a little far-fetched. 😉 As I write this, the US Vice Presidential Debate has concluded, the US Stock Market has tanked again, and the US Congress is still wrestling to balance politics with a useful spending plan. Given all these challenges to our equanimity (and, as a US citizen, I feel for you, rest-of-the-world, as your markets tend to dance with ours), I can have but one response: Join the Silly Party.
The following British election results clearly show the Silly Party in the lead; however for all us non-Brits, I’m told that the Silly Party is now world-wide, and seems the sensible party to join.
Convinced yet? I know it seems the Silly Party will only succeed in Britain, which, admittedly, is a very silly place, but as these next two documentary videos prove, Silliness has come to the USA, nay, to the world, indeed, to the entire galaxy!
For those of you who do not appreciate the seriously sophisticated, finely nuanced style that is Monty Python—and/or Star Trek—(and I know you’re out there) please just skip the next one and be my friend anyway, ‘K? 🙂
