Hot Investment During This Financial Turmoil

I remember when I started driving, gas was $0.86 a galloon and I could fill up my gas tank in my Pontiac Grand Prix for under $15. Or buying three candy bars for $1. Or seeing a matinee movie for $3. With inflation and the constant rising prices on everyday items and necessities, people are constantly looking for a bargain or the next great investment. The last thing a person wants to do is ask me for financial advice; however, I stumbled upon an investment joke that I thought was worth sharing, enjoy!

A little humor which we could all use these days....
If you had purchased $1000 of shares one year ago in: 
1. Delta Airlines, you will have $49.00 today.
2. AIG, you will have $33.00 today.
3. Lehman Brothers, you will have $0.00 today.
But if you had purchased $1000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned the aluminum cans for recycling refund, you will have received $214.00
Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily and recycle. It's called the 401-Keg.
A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. 
Another study found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.
That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon!

Makes you proud to be an American!
