And the visitor was not like the government at all. The visitor actually played the part of the banks, introducing liquidity into the financial equation.

Which is why governments get VERY anxious when banks get into trouble, because without the liquidity they supply, economies lock up and end up sitting on their own hands.

I’ve got to stop having lunch with economists.
He never received the $100! he was bypassed.

Stop thinking of that and go back to the net position at the start and end, then youíll see what I mean.

Trust me, he is no better or worse off, and since the guy didnít stay the night at the hotel, heís not owed anything for that either.

I think this parable is actually used in one form or another in first year economics lectures to help the students understand the effect of credit markets.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Young nun goes rushing into Mother Superiors office and exclaims 'Mother quick, I have been raped by he gardener, what shall I do?
Mother replies, "go to the kitchen dear, cut a lemon in half and suck on it"
"But Mother will that stop me from becoming pregnant?
To which Mother replied "no dear, but it will take that silly grin off your face'!

Thanks for letting me know!

The other website is having problems displaying properly on Chrome, so I recently switched to Edge to view that site and copy jokes off of it. I'm still logged in here on Chrome, so for some reason, it's causing them to show up for me, but not for everyone.

I'll switch back to Chrome and try to redo the last few jokes. Forgive me if there are a couple of duplicates.

On a completely different topic, interesting to see the stimulus package joke generated so much discussion. The closest my ex-wife got to understanding economics was, "How could I be overdrawn?? I still have plenty of checks in the checkbook!"

I swear, that was a direct quote!

Lol......
That's why my filipina girlfried only deals in cash for her personal and boat purchases..... as a credit card or checkbook would be deadly!

Even then, I thought the (money)Tree was the appropriate desktop icon for her bookkeeping.

It's a slow day in the small town of Pumphandle, Alabama. And the streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody is living on credit.
A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel, and lays a $100.00 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs to pick one for the night.
As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher.
(Stay with this..... And pay attention)
The butcher takes the $100.00 and runs down the street to retire his debt to the pig farmer.
The pig farmer takes the $100.00 and heads off to pay his bill to his supplier, the Co-op.
The guy at the Co-op takes the $100.00 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer her "services" on credit.
The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel owner.
The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the traveler will not suspect anything.
At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves.
No one produced anything. No one earned anything.
However, the whole town now thinks they are out of debt and there is a false atmosphere of optimism and glee.
And that, my friends, is how a "government stimulus package" works!
Scoldmax's post are coming through fine here in Montana. Maybe one has to pull the string tighter on the connection of the two can modems.

WARNING!!!

This joke is about throwing one of the BOXES into the fire, and not one of the children as I originally thought.

Still funny, but a lot less.

Re: The New Joke Thread

On a similar note, I have a 15 yr old female Rottweiler who is so possessive she will growl at women and physically force us apart with her body.

I also have a 10 yr old male black labrador who is very shy and loves to get scratched, but he's too sensitive to approach unless he's encouraged. I just recently noticed that as soon as I go out the front door, the male lab will sit at the top of the stairs and stare at the front door. If I come home the same day, I find that he's still there, waiting patiently, but instead of waiting for me to pet him as I get there, he turns and goes to his bed in the living room and thumps his tail.

The female Rottie doesn't go to the stairs, or greet me, or even get up from her bed next to his. But if I bring a woman into the house, she'll assert her dominance in every way.

I've been married twice, so I think this is more of a gender thing than a breed thing.
