[Sue Doh Nem] Waiting for (Pocket) Change

Big Roscoe: "As the rich get richer and the broke remain broke, a tiny ray of hope for the nation's financially challenged consumer appears in the form of $600 to $1,200 economic stimulus packages. Upon receipt of this monetary package, consumers are urged to shop until the money is gone, and stimulate the nation's economy.

"Momma Roscoe says this stimulus is like someone giving a smelly beggar $2 to make him or her go away. I say, let's take the money, hope for an improved economy and not beg rich folk anymore. I guess hope is all we have. Oh my! Am I having a Barack Obama moment?

"While you anticipate the arrival of your $600 to $1,200, please join me, Momma Roscoe, and the Clubb Chicken Staff during the 'Clubb Chicken Wing Tax Stimulus Check Weekly Vigil and Mid-Week Financial Planning Happy Hour.' This weekly social event will feature an informal 'Eat-N-Drank Financial Think-Tank' session, brief economic seminar and budgeted snack time after-party.

"Our proposed weekly economic seminars are: 'Rudy McBride and Pookie Peters' 401 Small Change Savings Plan (a.k.a. Show the Piggy Your Money),' the Church Hat Sisters present 'Rev. Cletus' Tithes-N-Offering Savings Plan,' Kunta 'Rasheed X' 'Toby's Black Monday thru Friday Boycott the Man Savings Program,' and the Poor and Middle Class Home Refinancing and Investment Club presents 'The Finance Pimp Wants His House Back.'

"So, as you wait for your small change to come, chill with the folks at Clubb Chicken Wing!"

‘Eat-N-Drank Financial Think-Tank’ Kunta ‘Rasheed X’ ‘Toby’s Black Monday thru Friday Boycott the Man Savings Program,’ and the Poor and Middle Class Home Refinancing and Investment Club presents ‘The Finance Pimp Wants His House Back.’ ROTFL! Love it! I wonder what the gubment's reaction would be if everyone put their rebates in the bank or paid bills instead of spending it on flat-screen TVs. You know good and well that everyone's not going to head to the store to get big-ticket items. That's what they're hoping for.
