Bleak times call for a joke

I'm sure you've all heard that the stock market is down 105% and that everyone who owned shares of anything now owes Wall Street money. Shares of Media Empire stock (trading over-the-counter) were down tuppence and a ha'penny, closing at a farthing, under heavy trading. I'm proud to report that I'm still holding on to my three shares.

Consumer confidence needs a boost, and the only thing better than a 0.75% drop in the overnight rate is our Joke of the Indeterminate Time Period. This joke comes from Uma Thurman, a longtime fan.

Three tomatoes are walking down the street- a papa tomato, a mama tomato, and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Papa tomato gets angry, but the baby tomato keeps lagging. Finally he goes over to the baby tomato, and steps right on him, smooshes him... and says, "You were adopted and I never liked you."

Don't bleak times call for good jokes?

Just kidding. ;)

No, bleak times call for bleak anti-jokes.
