    It is a slow day in the small Saskatchewan
    town of Pumphandle and streets are deserted.

    Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and
    everybody is living on credit.

    A tourist visiting the area drives through town,
    stops at the motel, and lays a $100 bill on the
    desk saying he wants to inspect the
    rooms upstairs to pick one for the night.

    As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner
    grabs the bill and runs next door to pay his debt
    to the butcher.

    The butcher takes the $100 and runs down
    the street to retire his debt to the pig farmer.

    The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads
    off to pay his bill to his supplier, the Co-op.

    The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 and
    runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute,
    who has also been facing hard times and has had to
    offer her "services" on credit.

    The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays
    off her room bill with the hotel owner.
    The hotel proprietor then places the $100
    back on the counter so the traveler will
    not suspect anything.

    At that moment the traveler comes down
    the stairs, states that the rooms are not
    satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves.

    No one produced anything.

    No one earned anything...

    However, the whole town is now out of debt
    and now looks to the future with a lot more

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how a
    "stimulus package" works.
