  • Some 401K Humor

    For those of us that need a smile in the midst of all the economic issues swirling around us:

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49.00 today.

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would have $33.00 today.

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you would have $0.00 today.

    But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund, you would have received $214.00.

    Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. It is 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!

    Live. Love. Laugh.
