Happy Friday! The economy seems to be taking its lumps these days and the price of everything is on the way up. I cannot help you with the prices, but I can offer you a laugh or two about them.
In today’s economy, it seems like if you can finally make ends meet, inflation moves the ends.
Inflation is a lot like toothpaste, once it is out, it is very difficult to get it back in again.
I went to one of those internet sites that will estimate the value of your car. It asked if the tank was empty or full.
I heard that the price of grapes has gone up because there was a raisin demand.
Now that Tom Brady has retired from football, I heard he is considering running for President. His platform will be lowering inflation.
I think I am a walking illustration of today’s economy: my hairline is in recession and my stomach is a victim of inflation – put these together and I am heading toward deep depression.
I remember as a kid I would put air in my bike tires for free. Now it’s $1.50! I guess that is because of “inflation.”
Inflation is bad, the other day I paid twenty dollars for the ten-dollar haircut I used to get for five dollars when I had more hair.
Inflation is really getting out of hand, but that is just my 4 1/2 cents.
I think there are a lot of jokes about inflation these days because demand has increased following a period of low interest….
