Angelina Jolie adopted a child from America.

My cousin had an exorcism but couldn't afford to pay for it, and they re-possessed her!

A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico.

A picture is now only worth 500 words.

When Bill and Hillary travel together, they now have to share a room.

The Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas is now managed by Somali pirates.

I don't usually like 'funny' emails but a few of these were worth a giggle.

I especially enjoyed the Bill and Hillary reference.

But I'm guessing it's not true.

Times are so tough in the USA that that magicians have tuned to charlatanry and are running off with borrowed items.

It's so bad that Tony Soprano can't even afford to feed the fishes.

The best - I've deleted the email now but some weren't very funny and a couple were tasteless sexual innuendo, which everyone knows I find unforgivable, so I certainly won't be repeating the one about the renewed passion women have for their husbands since the price of batteries skyrocketed.

Thank You Acesover - I've always found the sledgehammer a fine tool for subtlety - the Master of Subtlety is Lobo who often requires a second read just to be sure.

I googled tea substitutes so I could make a word play on the Tea Party but 'Things are so tough in the US conservatives can only afford a Jersey Tea Party' didn't work for me - perhaps, unlike me, you folks are familiar with Jersey Tea or Red Root.
