Check out LA Times’ Steve Lopez column….so funny:
WALL STREET CEO: Hi, honey, I’m at the office and I’ve got horrible news.
CEO WIFE: Oh, my gosh. Is Obama cutting back on the bailout?
CEO: It’s worse than that. He’s ordering pay cuts for Wall Street bosses whose companies get handouts.
WIFE: Is that even legal?
CEO: I think so, and I’m afraid we’re going to have to tighten our belts.
WIFE: What kind of a pay cut are you talking about?
CEO: Brace yourself. It’s $500,000.
WIFE: Well, that’s harsh, and Obama must not have any idea how hard you work. But I think we can get by on $10.5 million a year.
CEO: No, you don’t get it. My pay would be $500,000. That’s it. Honey? Honey, are you there?
WIFE: Yes, I’m here. I’m breathing into a paper sack.
CEO: Should I call 911?
