Having Fun with Finances

Finances are a serious subject.  There are recessions, debt, bail outs and stock market crashes on the news every day.  So, I thought I would lighten things up a bit and have some fun with finances.  Below are some jokes, quotes and cartoons I rounded up for your entertainment.

    I was just checking your site yesterday and trust me I really liked the way you have presented it. I was going through some of your article and I really found them interesting and informative. So I was just wondering if I can do something for your site. I am a content writer and I love writing articles on topic like finance, real estate, education, etc. What if I provide you with an unique article as a Guest Post or even you can publish with your name. I really don’t have an issue, after all its your website, its your hard work.

    The article will be rich in content and will be well presented to you. All I would like to ask for only one link in the article. I would not charge a penny to you for the article 🙂

    Please let me know if this sound good to you, so that I can start working on your article.

    Best Regards,



  • I loved these, Bret.

    • Len,

      I’m betting you first heard this joke from your wife and recycled it for the audience.

      C’mon, be honest. 😉
