A perfect excuse for more tattoos

This has been bouncing around the internet for a few days now, but it's too funny not to share. And with the CPSIA nonsense behind us (for a little while anyway), I'm in a damn good mood!

Stimulus Payment Information

This year, taxpayers will receive an Economic Stimulus Payment. This is a very exciting new program that I will explain using the Q and A format:

Q. What is an Economic Stimulus Payment?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q. Where will the government get this money?
A. From taxpayers.

Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
A. Only a smidgen.

Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?
A. Shut up.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

If you spend that money at WalMart, all the money will go to China.

If you spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.
If you purchase a computer it will go to India.
If you purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (unless you buy organic).
If you buy a car it will go to Japan.
If you purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan or China.

And none of it will help the American economy.

We need to keep that money here in America.


You can keep the money in America by spending it at yard sales, going to a football or baseball game, spending it on prostitutes, beer and wine (domestic ONLY), or tattoos, since those are the only true U. S. businesses remaining.

Hmmmm, I have so many ideas for tattoos and I don't know where to start. I mean, I know what I want for each part of my body, but I don't know what I want to get first.

Jo, I didn't know you had a tattoo. What's it of?

um....a butterfly on my stomach, it has/had a heart in the middle & the wings are 2 profiles looking in at the heart...except, remember how I have a kid! Well, the more my belly grew the more the butterfly took on the shape of a prehistoric pterodactyl/moth! It will really never be the same :) Pity!
