BAILOUT EXPLAINED

 

Once upon a time a man appeared in a village and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each.
The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them.

The man bought thousands at $10 and, as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He next announced that he would now buy monkeys at $20 each. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.

Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so scarce it was an effort to even find a monkey, let alone catch it.

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50 each! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would buy on his behalf.  In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers: "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has already collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each."

The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys for 700 billion dollars.

They never saw the man or his assistant again, only lots and lots of monkeys!

JOB  INTERVIEW

A man seeking to join a border state Sheriff's Department is being interviewed.
The Sergeant doing the interview says:
'Your qualifications all look good, but there is an attitude suitability test that you must take before you can be accepted.'
Then, sliding a service pistol across the desk, he says:
'Take this pistol and go out and shoot six illegal aliens, six meth dealers, six Muslim extremists and a rabbit.'
'Why the rabbit?' the man asked.
'Great attitude,' says the Sergeant. 'When can you start?'
