The economy is a joke. Does that count?
I've never walked on the sun, so I don't know what heat is.
No, you've never used a bunsen burner, so you don't know what a calorie is.
And, I've never had a colonoscopy, so I don't know what internal is.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced his willingness to serve another term, noting "Where else in this economy could I get another job?"

It's hard to be irrationally exuberant when you are homeless.

I went downtown to ask for a loan.

The man said, why ask here? This is a gas station, we don't have money to lend right now. He said:

"Try the bakery."

You mean you don't want your country socialized for such a small amount of money? You'd sing a different tune if you was a Bank of America executive. If you don't want it, please forward to me so I can buy more rice and bananas for my porridge. :)

Jokes only, please! :)

It's no joke that $13 USD will buy a lot of rice and nanners in Guangzhou! :) But wait about a year, mebbe two, and I doubt it will buy much at all.
