There are 240 million people in America.
But 100 million are over 65.
And 90 million are under 21.
That leaves 50 million to do the work.
But 18 million are in the armed forces.
That leaves 32 million to do the work.
But 6 million are on welfare.
That leaves 26 million to do the work.
But 15 million work for the government.
That leaves 11 million to do the work.
But 10 million are in school.
That leaves 1 million to do the work.
But 750,000 are sick or disabled.
That leaves 250,000 to do the work.
But last week 249,998 people were in jail.
That leaves 2 people to do all the work,
and you don't do that much.
No wonder I'm so tired!
