Why the "bad" economy is good (for me)

Sure is a lot less traffic.

No waiting at restaurants.

Lines in the bank are short.

Twenty dollars is back to being called 'twenty large'

"Oh sorry, we can't afford it" Means I can just watch TV.

I get to go another year without visiting Cousin Saul (in paradise)

Homeless people are back to being called bums.

I can blame Obama.

I can say things like "Bush would have fixed this mess in two weeks."

I can finally get Wifey that Burlap Sack Dress she's been wanting (but not the Shoe Box Shoes)

I get to finally visit the mysterious 'Food Pantry' (with Michael)

Obama will give me 40 acres and a mule.

Or something.

--------
SO TO SUM UP:

The economy is fine.
