Invest Weiser

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would have $33.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you would have $0.00 today.

But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for the recycling refund, you will have received a $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle.

It is called the 401-Keg.

After looking at our 401k investments, I think I'll go with the drink heavily and recycle plan.

Michael said...

Don't even get me started on 401k plans...I would never dream of opening my window and throwing money out of it. Yet rhetorically, that's what I've just done.

Betty said...

Hah! I'd laugh, except it's true!!

Hugs,
