The Magic Elixar! ©

A man goes in to see a psychiatrist. He tells the doctor that he's depressed, drinking too much, taking drugs, has lost his wife and his job, and his children hate him. He asks the doctor how he can resolve his problems.

"Tax cuts," said the doctor.

Richard H. Davis
From the comments tread at Hullabaloo on Paul Krugman day.

Conservatives like to think tax cuts solve all problems, that's why this joke is so timely (and funny to me.) But. They. Are. Wrong.

And yes, I know I spelled elixir wrong. I know what I'm doing. In the naming branding game all the good words are taken, so you either make one up or misspell one so you can own it. Right now in some brainstorming session in a conference room in Schenectady this phrase just came up and they think "Oh this would be so funny and hip. We'll name our new drink this! See if it is available." Guess what folks, it's mine!

I'm going to copyright this phrase and spelling so when a drink company or drug company wants to use it they will have to pay me! I'll take $400,000 or best offer for the naming rights . There is already a company named Elixar, but nothing with both Magic AND Elixar. I'll be rich! And then I'll want tax cuts. :-)

Good lord, i am SO sick of hearing about tax cuts. If folks are laid off and unemployed, there are no taxes to cut.

Oh wait, they're not interested in tax cuts to working folk, just to those who already have more than enough and who've benefited from Bush's policies subsidizing the rich on the backs of the rest of us.

I can't believe we are having these stupid arguments and that THEY'RE WINNING! It's stunning. I feel as hopeless now as I did before the election.

You need a viral video like from the movie "Idiocracy." Like Fox, feel free to ideas from others:

But wait you know about charlatans already...

Very funny. After reading about all the depressing broadcasts of KSFO "Hutu Power" radio in other posts of yours, I enjoyed the joke taken from the Hullabaloo comments (I missed it there).

You gave me my early pre-Daily Show laugh this morning. Thank you.
