I found this one at Bloodthirsty Liberal…
If you had purchased $1,000 of AIG stock one year ago, you would have $42 left.
With Lehman, you would have $6 left.
With Fannie or Freddie, you would have less than $5 left.
But if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling refund, you would have had $214.
Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.
