Texas Humor - Investment Advice
This little ditty made me chuckle...but, of course, it makes sense. I am a rabid recycler...and the beer is consumed by my hubby! Hope this brightens your day just a little!
I have done my research.
If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you will have $49 today.
If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you will have $33 today.
If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago,you will have $0 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 a recycling refund, you will
have received $214.00.
Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. It is called the 401-Keg. A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon!
Makes you proud to be an American!
