I normally don’t post jokes, but my sister sent me this and I thought it was quite appropriate for the times.
If you had purchased $1,000 of AIG stock one year ago…you would have $42 left. Lehman Bros… $6.60 left… Fannie or Freddie… You would have less then $5 left. BUT, If you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214 left. Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. It’s called the 401-Keg plan.
I’m not sure of the source, but you have to admit it’s funny!
If only I drank beer!
I must admit I smiled. Sounds like a sound plan to me… =)
You seriously can get 20% of the value of the beer back just by recycling cans? That's surprisingly high.
