BABBLIN' 'BOUT BUCKS


This one's a newer thing, from this year.
(Kind of an observation on a half decade of financial fibs
by the puffed-up powers that shouldn't be.)

INCLUDING THE ORIGINAL SIZZLING SCRIPT!

BABBLIN' 'BOUT BUCKS

(At the ad agency, Don Reynolds gets Ed to discuss dough.)

DON: Hey, Ed. It's been a few years since 2008, but the economy hasn't shown any big recovery yet. Aren't you worried?


ED: Not at all, Don. The fewer raises I get, the less money I waste on stupid things I don't really need.


DON: But what about basic stuff, like food? Now they even put less of it in each package. 


ED: Fine. Then I won't be spending any more money, and I'll be eating less. So I'll be healthier. Anyway, most people could stand to lose a couple pounds.


DON: I guess that's true. But I just thought you'd be more concerned about the whole financial picture. I'm always hearing on the news about how the fat cats still keep losing tons of money.


ED: Hey, that's the fat cats. Not us skinny cats. If they can't handle gambling gazillions of debt dollars, that's their problem, not ours.


DON: So you're saying we should actually try not to ever become millionaires? 


ED: Exactly! If a crooked bankster is looking to rob someone yet again, who's he gonna rob? The rich guy in the crowd!


DON: Good point! I feel much better now.


ED: Yes. Sometimes it actually pays to chill out from the rat race a little bit.


DON: But naturally we won't be chucking our jobs and heading down to the soup kitchen or anything like that.


ED: No, of course not. Sometimes I might sound stupid, but I ain't crazy!
