A Good Investment...

To make light of the current issues of the current stock market my Mom sent this to me:

Investment advice.
If you had purchased $1,000 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago, you
would have $49 left.
With Fannie Mae, you would have $2.50 left of the original $1,000.
With AIG, you would have less than $15 left.
But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drunk all
of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling
REFUND, you would have $214 cash.
Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink
heavily and recycle.

Even if you don't drink, like myself, this sounds like good advice!

I heard this on the radio yesterday, I think it's perfect for those of us who live in Wisconsin!!!

Now that is a very interesting way to look at it! I should call my investment "guy" but I'm honestly very scared to do so. This whole thing is scaring me. Sorry...too serious. Have a great weekend!
