Quote from: New york times

A recession is when you your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose your job. A recovery is when Nancy Pelosi loses her job.

From Jay Leno...

"US Airways has a new slogan: When you can't decide on a flight or cruise."

"They showed the plane floating on the Hudson River. All the passengers evacuated using life vests - well, those that had $25."

"Rescuers not only got all the passengers out of the Hudson River, they also pulled up three mob bodies that had been thrown in there, too."

"People are wondering now how they were going to get the plane out of the river, but the FAA said today since it was the Hudson River, the airplane will probably just dissolve in a week or so."

"And I thought this was nice. US Airways said that each passenger will still get 3 frequent-flier miles. They will get credit!"

If I'm not mistaken that line comes from Ronald Reagan, with jimmy carter in Nancy Pelosi's place.

Some very true statements.   * Going to shul doesn't make you a tzadik any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.   * Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.   * If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.  
* We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public. 
 
* War does not determine who is right - only who is left. 
 
* Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. 
 
* The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.  
 
* Evening news is where they begin with 'Good evening', and then proceed to tell you why it isn't.
 
* To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.  
 
* A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station. 
 
* How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?  
 
* Some people are like Slinkies ... not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs. 
 
* Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish. 
 
* I thought I wanted a career; turns out I just wanted pay checks. 
 
* A bank is a place that will lend you money, if you can prove that you don't need it. 
 
* Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says "If an emergency, notify:" I put "DOCTOR." 
 
* I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you. 
 
* Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars but checks when you say the paint is wet? 
 
* A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory. 
 
* You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice. 
 
* The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas! 
 
* Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won't expect it back. 
 
* Hospitality: making your guests feel like they're at home, even if you wish they were. 
 
* Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with. 
 
* Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others whenever they go. 
 
* I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure. 
 
* I always take life with a grain of salt, plus a slice of lemon, and a shot of tequila. 
 
* When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire Department usually uses water. 
 
* You're never too old to learn something stupid. 
 
* To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target. 
 
* A bus is a vehicle that runs twice as fast when you are after it as when you are in it.

People that are closer to the other world than this one, usually don't tell stories anymore.

Everyone has a right to be stupid, but you're abusing the privilege.
