Hilarious Hump Day – Spanking the Christmas Spirit

I remember as a schoolboy, when you got caught acting up – being loud, cracking jokes to disrupt class, throwing spitballs, etc. – you got sent to the principal’s office and got your butt whupped with the “board of education.” Well, times have changed, and now if a teacher so much as looks cross-eyed at a kid he or she can get slapped with a lawsuit. But hey – if there were such a thing nowadays as corporal punishment in our grade schools, you might just see a scene like this, hmm?

Hilarious Hump Day – This is Stimulation?

It’s a slow day in the small town of Pumphandle 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 hotel, and lays a $100 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 hotel 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 and runs down the street to retire his debt to the pig farmer. The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his supplier, the Co-op. The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 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.

(Almost done…keep reading)

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 that they are out of debt and there is a false
atmosphere of optimism and glee.

And that, my friends, is how a “stimulus package” works!
