    For those investors out there….

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago,
    you will have $49.00 today!

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you will have
    $33.00 today.

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago,
    you will have $0.00 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 recycling refund, you
    will have received a $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 damned proud to be an American!!!
