The population of this country is 300 million.






160 million are retired.







That leaves 140 million to do the work.









There are 85 million in school.









Which leaves 55 million to do the work.











Of this there are 35 million employed by the federal government.









Leaving 15 million to do the work.

















2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with killing Osama
Bin-Laden.







Which leaves 12.2 million to do the work.









Take from that total the 10.8 million people who work for state and city
Governments. And that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.











At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals.







Leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.











Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons











That leaves just two people to do the work











You and me.







And there you are,







Sitting on your butt,









At your computer, reading jokes.









Nice. Real nice.
