Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

Economics Through Cows (Something To Offend Everyone)

My pal Vic sent me this and I had to share it with ya'll:

Economics through cows
SOCIALISM: You have 2 cows and you give one to your neighbour.
COMMUNISM: You have 2 cows, the Government takes both and gives you some milk. FASCISM: You have 2 cows, the Government takes both and sells you some milk. NAZISM: You have 2 cows. The Government takes both and shoots you. BUREAUCRATISM: You have 2 cows; the Government takes both, shoots one, milks the other
and throws the milk away
TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Your herd
multiplies, and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on the
income.
AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to
produce the milk of four cows. Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why
the cow dropped dead. *pretty sure this is a Canadian thing too*
A FRENCH CORPORATION: You have two cows. You go on strike because you want three
cows.
A JAPANESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth
the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then
create a clever cow cartoon image called Cowkimon and market them
World-Wide.
A GERMAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You reengineer them so they live for 100
years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.
AN ITALIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows, but you don't know where they are. You
break for lunch.
A RUSSIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five
cows. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them
again and learn you have 2 cows. You stop counting cows and open another
bottle of vodka.
A SWISS CORPORATION: You have 5000 cows, none of which belong to you. You charge
others for storing them.
A CHINESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You have 300 people milking them. You
claim full employment, high bovine productivity, and arrest the newsman who
reported the numbers.
AN INDIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You worship them.
A BRITISH CORPORATION: You have two cows. Both are mad.
