Joke - The rich tourist

Bedlam - humour.

Thanks once more to Fred Ashford for this contribution.

It is the month of June, on the shores of the Black Sea. It is raining, and the little town looks 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 only hotel, lays a 100 Euro note on the reception counter, and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one.

When the tourist is out of sight, the hotel proprietor takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to the butcher.

The Butcher accepts the 100 Euro note with good grace, and goes off to repay his own debt to the pig farmer.

The pig farmer is overjoyed to have the money, grabs the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel.

The supplier of feed and fuel is amazed to have his money yet knows he has debts, so takes the 100 Euro note and goes to pay his debt to the town prostitute that in these hard times, gave her services on credit.

Because of the payment, the hooker finds she has just enough money to pay what she owes. She runs with the 100 Euro note, to the hotel to pays off her debt for the rooms she rented when she brought her clients there.

The hotel proprietor raises his brow with respect, then lays the 100 Euro note back on the counter so that the rich tourist will not suspect anything.

At that moment, the rich tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms saying he did not like any of the rooms. He picks up his 100 Euro note and leaves town to look for a better place.

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 exactly how the United States Government got into the shit.

Very clever, Fred. It seems to me that it might be true of all Western Society at the moment.
