Trouble in the USA

Apologies if: 1.this was already posted earlier & 2. it anyone finds it politically incorrect. It's just a joke, received a few minutes back from an American pal.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The current down trend in the USA economy has hit everybody really hard...

My neighbor got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.

Wives are having sex with their husbands because they can't afford batteries.

CEO's are now playing miniature golf.

Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.

A stripper was killed when her audience showered her with rolls of pennies
while she danced.

I saw a fundamentalist Mormon with only one wife.

If the bank returns your check marked "Insufficient Funds," you call them and ask if they meant you or them.

McDonald's is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

Angelina Jolie adopted a child from America.

Parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children's names.

My cousin had an exorcism but couldn't afford to pay for it, and they re-possessed her!

A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico.

A picture is now only worth 200 words.

When Bill and Hillary travel together, they now have to share a room.

The Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas is now managed by Somali pirates.

And, finally....
I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings,

Social Security, retirement funds, etc. I called the Suicide Hotline and got a

call center in the Middle East. When I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited,

and asked if I could drive a truck.
