Recession,blah blah blah

(Quip: That's what I felt like doing, today. Read on)

ROFL....no,there's no reason for that bit of laughter...it's just that I've heard so many things from people-rumours or otherwise, about the effect the current world crisis seems to be having out here, that it was high time I had a good laugh,or, if not, just feel sad about people who've recently lost their jobs,been told to sit home on LWP,etc. Here's hoping things change for the better for  all, very soon.

Amidst all the rumors and realities floating around, of the recession, of how it’s affecting people and projects, here and round the world, it was a refresher to see some humor related to this crisis. Amongst the ones I found funniest(Austy, I know you’ll enjoy these) , were:

-What worries me about the credit crunch is that if one of my cheques is returned stamped ‘insufficient funds’,  I won’t know whether that refers to mine or the bank’s!’

-How do you define optimism?

-A banker who irons five shirts on a Sunday.

-If you want to gamble, go to Las Vegas. If you want to trade in derivatives, God  bless you.

-The US have developed a new weapon that destroys people but it leaves buildings standing. It’s called the stock market.


 Broker: What my broker made me. 


A woman goes to her doctor, complaining that her husband is 300% impot*nt. The doctor says, "I'm not sure I understand what you mean." She says, "Well, the first 100% you can imagine. In addition, he 
burned his tongue and broke his finger!"


Till next time,keep smiling, and ,as far as possible,don't let recessionist thoughts get to you!!

Great positive post Amit!

To be honest, I too am dead bored of this recession drama! I was so frikkin annoyed by some ppl who ALWAYS chose to speak abt it in my presence and sound like the whole world in crashing down on their bed! WTF. Cant ppl stop whinging abt things that they possibly cannot change directly or quickly. Im different. I dun worry abt things that I dun hv any control of. I just be.

**In addition, he
burned his tongue and broke his finger!"

LOL LOL LOL! Good one! :):)

"Broker: What my broker made me."

Shouldn't it be "broke: what my broker made me"? (scratching head.)
