Financial Humor...

In these financially depressing times Julie over at Happy Catholic gave me a good laugh this morning:

If you had purchased $1,000 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago, you would have $49 left.

With Fannie Mae, you would have $2.50 left.

With AIG you would have less than $15 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drunk all the beer, then turned in the cans for aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214 cash.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.

To which Tom responds with a comment to her post:
Any portfolio should carry a reasonable amount of liquid investments.
