Financial jokes may only be a part of this page when it gets totally filled out because I could also add jokes about politics as well. After all, our politicians have been the leaders in getting us into the mess we are in anyway.
I know that we citizens are not blameless in this whole process, but the politicians have taken the game to a whole new level. Money jokes and jokes about the economy flow freely at comedy clubs and the stand-up comedians are having a field day.
Therefore, I decided that it was time to start a page dedicated to financial jokes as I believe that this mess is going to continue on for years to come and therefore there should be plenty of laughter to come. (What a mess!)
Anyway, I've started this financial jokes page off with some funny business/stock market definitions that I thought were quite good. (I wish I knew where they came from so I could give somebody credit for them, but I don't.)
I've followed that up with some Jay Leno quotes which are quite good and I'll add other "yuks" as they come along.
Enjoy them and remember, money can't buy happiness, but poverty can't buy anything!
