DURST: Partially Tanned Economists

Hey guys. Let me preface this by saying what I know about money you could stuff into the eye socket of a Microfossil from Mars with plenty of room left over for my understanding of linear accelerators. But isn't this that time of the year when partially tanned economists go back to school and predict a substandard Christmas sales season because we the public will not buying enough new stuff.How dare we? Just exactly who do we think we are? What could possibly be going through our tiny little minds, when various expensive studies by our own government prove that saving up for a rainy day just means we're going to get exceedingly wet. WE'RE the bad guys. Again.Hey, maybe we already have everything we need. Did we ever think about that? What happens when the American public realizes it doesn't need automatic microwave popcorn poppers because you can make it on the stove just as fast and it doesn't taste like cardboard dipped in stagnant drainage water from the Love Canal? Yeah, what then? I mean how many genuine replica Jamestown Company pewter napkin ring sets does one family require? I already have one more suction cup car window mooning guy than I really need. Will Durst received his suction cup car window mooning guy as a gift.
