    I’m surprised Burl managed to save ANY money, much less stuff it in a mayo pot!

    Oh, and get a load of Burl’s extended pinkie! Bwahahaha!

    Purple, I can believe that they would buy—or otherwise obtain—the 64 oz. size of mayo. But Hellmann’s, not so much. Haven’t seen it in the dollar store.

    Mikie it was a jar he found in the neighbors trash. They like it on the table when guests come over so it makes them look not so cheap…
    I can’t believe they paid 100.00 to attend the banquet??
    There must be some good expensive food on the table.
    I don’t see Joy’s bag for leftovers hanging around her neck, maybe they checked it at the door…

    Wow that is pretty big corporate event to have Jesse White Tumblers. No wonder they charged $100.

    I’ll bet that Hellman’s jar is 1/2 full of penny’s, no pun intended as I don’t think a Penny would fit in a 55 gallon barrel.

    That’s a dang lie! Penny’s never shelled out for a jar of Hellmann’s in their lives. They use generic imitation mayo from Dollar Demon.
    Okay. It’s not really a lie. The lie was implying they eat Hallmann’s, when the truth is that they scavenge old Hellmann’s jars and scoop the generic imitation into them for the benefit of guests. After, of course, pouring off the oil that separated while it sat in the hot warehouse. The oil isn’t wasted. It goes into a scavenged imported virgin olive oil bottle.

    Well, Burl is right in the one thing – that he can’t lose in the Stock Market if he doesn’t invest. After his losses, my old BF in Chicago gave up on stocks altogether; he’s into mint coinage now.

    Personally, if I invest in gold and silver (other than the flat stock I have to work) it will be just some good chains (not only very liquid, but I can enjoy wearing them in the meantime).

    I would imagine that U-Stor-It would do well in either a bull (no more recipes today!) or a bear market (interesting possibilities, bear claws?t; people are either going to store stuff on the way up or on the way out.
    Joy’s comment about the stock market not affecting them at all probably wouldn’t wash well in Greece or the other PIIGS right now.
    Guess what, while you might not personally own stocks or bonds, your IRA or pension are heavily invested in both.
    And Dazz, overall, black gold (Exxon, et al.) has far outperformed metals.

    Burl figures that he’s plenty savvy ‘bout “money markets”……whenever he goes to those corner markets, he always makes sure he’s taking money.

    He invested in Hellman’s hoping they would buy the Mayo Clinic.

    Hah! Great line. Bravo for you.

    @Mikie, I now have only one IRA in a fund which is not too bad, another was in Utilities which sold to a foreign company (not my choice, so I’ve already paid the taxes on it and invested in another utility company (not in my area) and at my age, I feel it’s good to have some annuities (one of which is another IRA). I have a small stash of gold and silver because I like to work it and I’d not choose to put a large % in more, but some gold chains would be easy to sell for ready cash if economy went south.
