We received a great email chain today. Thought it would be a great one to republish as our first blog post here at ChooseTattoos…
This year, we taxpayers will receive another ‘Economic Stimulus’ payment. This is a very exciting program, and I’ll explain it by using a Q & A format:
Q. What is an ‘Economic Stimulus’ payment?
A. It is money the federal government will send to taxpayers.
Q. Where will government get this money?
A. From taxpayers.
Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
A. Only a smidgen of it.
Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?
A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.
Q. Doesn’t that stimulate economy of China ?
A. Shut up. Below is helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:
* If you spend stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka .
* If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.
* If you purchase a computer, it will go to India , Taiwan or China.
* If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico , Honduras and Guatemala .
* If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea .
* If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .
* If you pay off credit cards, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.
Instead, keep the money in America by:
1) Spending it at yard sales, or
2) Going to ball games, or
3) Spending it on prostitutes, or
4) Beer or
(These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S.)
Conclusion: Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day! No need to thank me, just glad I could help.
