A friend sent this to me:

HERE’S HOW BAD INFLATION IS:

My neighbor got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.

CEOs are now playing miniature golf.

Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.

McDonald's is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

Angelina Jolie adopted a child from America.

Parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children's names.

A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico.

A picture is now only worth 200 words.

The Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas is now managed by Somali pirates.

Called to get Blue Book Value on my car. They asked if gas tank was full or empty.

And, finally... I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings,
Social Security, retirement funds, etc., I called the Suicide Hotline.
I got a call center in Afghanistan, and when I told them I was suicidal,
they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck.

Bebu, I hope you’re not being serious. Sometimes the best thing to do when in a hopelessly bad situation is to laugh about it.

I am serious the list listed all the things that I wouldn't care about. Inflation would show up a lot more significant to me like someone can't afford to buy food or medicine.

I sometimes think about inflation as something very positive. But only when its just morning wood.

At 83, a bit of morning wood would be welcome.

Well put.

And for hunters, that four-point buck grew to 12 points, and dressed out at 300 pounds!
