The Smart Way to Spend your Tax Stimulus Check

My sister sent me this via email. It must be making the email rounds:

As you may have heard, each of us will be getting a tax rebate check to
stimulate the economy.

If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China. If
we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs. If we purchase a computer
it will go to India. If we purchase fruits and vegetables it will go to
Honduras, and Guatemala. If we purchase a good car it will go to Japan.

If we purchase useless stuff it will go to Taiwan and none of it will
help the American economy.

We need to keep that money here in America. The only way to keep that
money here at home is to spend it at yard sales, since those are the
only businesses left owned by Americans!!

aww, how nice of your sister. i got a similar email too, but the ending is different, not about yardsales. it goes like this:

The only way to keep that money here at home is to buy prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in the US. Thank you for your help.

i like yours better since that's how i will spend my money. really!
