HARRY’S BIG ADVENTURE!
“Today is a big day in America.”
Really? How big, Harry?
“Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good.”
uhh–yeah–that’s, uh, really good. Now if only a coupla’ hundred politicians lost their jobs, too, that would be really great.
“The Unemployment Rate around America has not changed.”
More great news. I guess.
“Prognosticators thought it would go up and it has not.”
Harry has hit on the key here. For the last year, experts have been telling us every month that unemployment was “unexpectedly” worse. This month, they say it’s “unexpectedly” better. But either way, they’re admitting they were wrong. But they never lose their jobs.
Therefore, we need to give the 15 million unemployed Americans jobs as…experts!
After all, as an expert, even when you’re wrong, month after month after month, you can’t be fired. Problem solved!
Maybe all those doctors in lab coats at the White House could look at the president’s eyes. He was supposed to “focus like a laser” on jobs, but he hasn’t even found the eye chart yet–except for the one growth industry:
The federal government hired 7,000 new employees. Celebrate!
