Working Your Butt Off
According to the American Leader Magazine, more Americans are working their asses off for a smaller payoff. “I don’t think we’ve ever seen so many folks doing so much for so little,” said magazine editor, Joshua Beggs. “These appear to be the worst of times for many people who are willing to take on any job, just to put food on the table,” he added.
“No one would ever expect that many Americans would be willing to take on so many manual jobs,” announced Richard Kingston, head of the American Jobs Board. “Things like boat pulling, horse semen collector or anal probe sterilizer, are jobs no one ever wanted before but, today they can’t be filled fast enough,” he stressed. “It seems with the economy as bad as it is, we can probably expect the battle for these “plum” jobs to increase in intensity.”
Following his recent release from the Indianapolis Colts, star QB Payton Manning has announced his intention to run for president on the republican ticket. This means that Manning will enter the primary and take on frontrunner Mitt Romney, as well as Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.
Manning’s lack of experience is expected to be made up by his solid name recognition. It’s not clear what his stance is on the major issues of the day but, Manning is known to be somewhat conservative on the football field, preferring short accurate passes to the deep balls. “There is no question in my mind that Peyton can run this country,” said former coach Tony Dungy. “It’s not much different than leading a football team down the field in the latter stages of the fourth quarter,” he added. “He knows how to lead men into battle and win,” said former teammate Jeff Saturday. “If I was going into battle, Payton is the guy I would want with me,” he added. Manning is expected to kick off his campaign with stops in Miami, New York and Denver this weekend.
