Stimulus Plan Q&A

Q. What is an Economic Stimulus Payment?  
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.
Q. Where will the government get this money?
A. From taxpayers.
Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
A. Only a smidgen.
Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.
Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China?
A. Shut up.  

    It be great if Iran was actually named Irun so that when we threatened it we could say, "Irun is about to become Iran" to imply we are going to destroy it and thus you'd use the past tense verb. Right now, that doesn't make any sense.
