Monkey Business



Once upon a time a man appeared in a village and announced to the
villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each.

The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the
forest and started catching them.

The man bought thousands at $10 and, as supply started to diminish, the
villagers stopped their effort. He next announced that he would now buy
monkeys at $20 each. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they
started catching monkeys again.

Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to
their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply of monkeys
became so scarce it was an effort to even find a monkey, let alone catch

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50 each! However,
since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would buy
on his behalf. In the absence of the man, the assistant told the
villagers: "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has
already collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when the man returns
from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each."

The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys for
700 billion dollars.

They never saw the man or his assistant again, only lots and lots of monkeys!

Now you have a better understanding of how the

It doesn't get much clearer than this................

Why Jesus Waited 3 Days before Resurrection

“Jesus waited three days to come back to life. It was perfect! If he had only waited one day, a lot of people wouldn't have even heard he died. They'd be all, "Hey Jesus, what up?" and Jesus would probably be like, "What up? I died yesterday!" and they'd be all, "Uh, you look pretty alive to me, dude..." and then Jesus would have to explain how he was resurrected, and how it was a miracle, and the dude'd be like "Uhh okay, whatever you say, bro..." And he's not gonna come back on a Saturday. Everybody's busy, doing chores, workin' the loom, trimmin' the beard, NO. He waited the perfect number of days, three. Plus it's Sunday, so everyone's in church already, and they're all in there like "Oh no, Jesus is dead", and then BAM! He bursts in the back door, runnin' up the aisle, everyone's totally psyched, and FYI, that's when he invented the high five. That's why we wait three days to call a woman, because that's how long Jesus wants us to wait.... True story.”

"BofA is coming to town" by Martin Andelman of Mandelman Matters

BofA is Coming to Town!
Well... they can't find your docs,
They can't tell you why,
They keep you on hold till, you want to cry.
BofA is coming to town...
You better stand guard,
Better stay on your toes,
Don't turn your back, or they're gonna' foreclose.
BofA is coming to town...
They'll send an application,
Tell you to fill it out,
They talk modification,
But what they say, you'd better doubt... OH!
You just never know,
What they might do,
Could own free and clear, it can happen to you.
BofA is coming to town...
You think that they'd never,
Do those kinds of thefts,
But BofA's right hands, don't talk to their lefts.
BofA is coming to town...
They'll break in while you're sleeping,
Drink your scotch and your chablis,
They don't see what the problem is,
They might steal your Christmas Tree! Yeah!
Not much you can do,
When all this occurs,
BofA will just say, go tell it to MERS.
BofA is coming to town...
So, if everything's gone,
Let me be frank,
You know the cops won't be, arresting a bank.
BofA is coming to town...
They don't care if they own it.
They don't care if you're late,
They don't care about anything,
Welcome to foreclosure-gate! Hey!
And, in case you were thinking,
BofA's a disgrace,
It's all the same, Wells, Citi or Chase...
BofA is coming to town...
... And they might just break your door down!
(It's the banks, betches!)
