  1. 12. CEO's are now playing miniature golf.
    11. I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.
    10. I went to buy a toaster oven and they gave me a bank.
    9. Hotwheels and Matchbox car companies are now trading higher than GM in the stock market.
    8. Obama met with small businesses - GE, Pfizer, Chrysler, Citigroup and GM, to discuss the Stimulus Package.
    7. McDonalds is selling the 1/4 ouncer.
    6. People in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and are learning their children's names.
    5. The most highly-paid job is now jury duty.
    4. People in Africa are donating money to Americans.
    Mothers in Ethiopia are telling their kids, "finish your plate do you know how many kids are starving in America ?"
    3. Motel Six won't leave the lights on.
    2. The Mafia is laying off judges.
    And my most favorite indicator of all.............
    1. If the bank returns your check marked as "insufficient funds," you have to call them and ask if they meant you or them.

  5. #1 is the best. These banks make so much money hitting people with overdraft fees. It should be a crime.

    #13: Nikon starts to lower its prices....

  7. 14. Just in the news: Congress bought 3 ea Corporate jets at a tune of $200 Million for their junkets... They probably got a deal because no company can afford the "bad" PR associated with such transportation nowadays!
