    If you had purchased $1000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you will have $49.00 today.

    If you had purchased $1000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you will have $33.00 today (even less now.)

    If you had purchased $1000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you will have $0.00 today.

    But---if you had purchased $1000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for a recycling refund--you will have received $214.00

    Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle.

    It's called the 401-Keg.

    I am sorry if i offend anyone with my joke or any misspelled words .?
