How to Retire a Millionaire!

So I’m working this weekend… And next weekend… And every weekend in the foreseeable future. There is no end in site. I really don’t know how I’m going to handle it. I can barely handle 5 days a week, so this will be quite a challenge.

It’s gonna be rough, but if I manage to hang in there, the overtime/double-time will be enough to fund my increasing addiction to the stock market. Maybe if I can squirrel enough money into the right stocks, I might be able to bootstrap a retirement plan that doesn’t include me working till the day I die.

But then again, I’m pretty sure that once I buy a stock, someone on Wall Street makes a call and tells another guy, and then the word gets around, then they all agree in solidarity to just let that particular stock drop like a brick, just so I can never get ahead. In fact the CEO and Board of Directors for any stock I buy will also decide to scuttle their companies, and thus ensure that I never make fucking dime doing this shit.

Maybe I can use this curse to my advantage. Bezos, if you’re listening, I swear to god I will buy every share of Amazon I can get my grubby little mitts on until the value of your company goes into the negative! To keep me from buying your stock and effectively forcing you to live on cat food for your remaining years, please send me one MILLION dollars! Mwaa-ha-ha-ha-hah!

I’m so sick of working all the time.

Of course a big shout out to my big homie, Big D, who came at me with 5 fantastic jokes for this week. Of course I’m only assuming it’s Big D because the submission page is kind of anonymous. Full disclosure: it records your IP address, so I can check that against an IP lookup site to see what ISP owns the IP address, but I can’t really tell who anyone actually is. I just assume it’s Big D because its coming from and ISP out of Cincy.

Oh, and the IP address is overwritten after the joke gets officially scheduled, so it’s not like there’s any incriminating evidence left from submitting a joke. Try it today! Everyone will be glad you did!

Pax,

    I guess you were too late to the party where people put the GameStop shorters in a “short squeeze”.

    Don’t worry, so was I.
