The Upside Of The Economic Downturn (Recesssion jokes)

Over in the good ol’ US of A, Barmy Barry Bammy’s administration was making a big thing this week of the fact that 80,000 new jobs were created in October, pretending this showed the economy was looking up. Like our government when they state numbers of “new” jobs created they do not set against it old jobs lost.

Still there is an upside to America’s massive unemployment problem: it is spawning jokes. Have a look at these I shamelessly nicked from a contributor at (I’d link him but gather puts it’s content behind a membership wall which is a pain in the arse. So hat tip to Bert B, he’s quite happy to let me use these jokes collected from around the web)
