I thought this might make someone laugh, especially since investing is taken so seriously most of the time.

This gives one a new perspective on important things.....If you had bought $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, It would now be
worth $49.00.
With Enron, you would have $16.50 left of the original 1,000.00.
With Worldcom, you would have less than $5.00 left.
If you had bought $1,000.00 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock) one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the Cans for the aluminum recycling price, you would have $214.00.
Based on the above, my current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.
This is my new retirement program. I call it my 401Keg.
