Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics says the price of electricity is at an all-time high in the U.S. The information is a little old since it had to be done by hand using candle light so the Bureau could keep the report within its budget.

Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics says the price of electricity is at an all-time high in the U.S. It’s getting so bad that an “electrical shock” now means the feeling you get when you open your power bill.

Emma Stone has been named as the most valuable actor in Hollywood, bringing in $80 to the studios for every dollar she is paid. As opposed to Adam Sandler, whose movies have brought in $80 to the studios total.

A report says that holiday sales were down for the third straight week. Fortunately the holiday shopping season now starts some time in June so there are twenty more weeks to make up for it.

Blackberry has canceled two new phone models before they even hit the market. To which most cellphone users are saying orange you glad you bought an apple and not a blackberry?

That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! It’s the last day of shopping before Christmas. And if you aren’t done by now, you are more than likely a man. I am taking a little time off for the holidays and won’t be posting until next Monday, December 30th. If you find it hard to make it through the next few days without my jokes, just go back in the archive to last Christmas and read those. They are all pretty much recycled from year to year. They just keep coming back like a regifted fruitcake. I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas...And always remember, I will never take it back to the exchange counter when you send the love!
