a plagiarized story

In a small town in the United States, the place looks almost totally deserted.

It is tough  times, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.

Suddenly, a rich  tourist comes to town.


He enters the  town’s only hotel, lays a $100 bill on the reception counter as a  deposit, and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick  one. PJ19[1]

The hotel proprietor  takes the $100 bill and runs to pay his debt to  the butcher.

The butcher takes  the $100 bill, and runs to pay his debt to the pig farmer.

pig-farmer-400ds0622[1] The pig  farmer runs to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel.

FLINN_FEED_MILL[1] The supplier of feed  and fuel takes the $100 bill and runs to pay his debt to the town's  prostitute that in these hard times, gave her "services" on credit.

Hooker-018[1] The hooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the $100 bill to the hotel  proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she  brought her clients  there.

The  hotel proprietor then lays the $100 bill back on the counter so that the  rich tourist will not suspect anything.

At that moment,  the tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms, and takes back his $100  bill, saying that he did not like any of the rooms,  and leaves  town.

No one earned anything.......... However, the whole town is now without debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is doing business  today!


  1. Hmmmm, maybe it is time for more restructuring.

    For starters maybe Timothy should be ousted and Bill be hired, but then again what do I know since I'm only a Canadian. :) -Brenda-

  2. ad business, while not great, is excellent if you are in the business of collecting taxes from the yokels.
