I'm tired

Yes, I'm tired.

For several years I've been blaming it on middle age, iron poor blood, lack of Vitamins, air polution, saccharin, obesity, dieting, under-arm odor, yellow wax build up, and a dozen other maladies that make you wonder if life is really worth living.

But, now I find out tain't that.

I'm tired because I'm over worked.


The population of this country is 200 million.

Eight-four million are retired, that leaves 116 million to do the work.

There are 75 million in school, which leaves 41 million to do the work.

Of this total, there are 22 million employed by the government, that leaves ninteen million to do the work.

Four million are in the armed forces, which leaves fifteen million to do the work.

Take from that total the 14,800,000 who work for the state and city governments and that leaves two hundren thousand to do the work.

There are 188,000 people in hospitals at any moment in time, so that leaves 12,000 to do the work.

Now according to government statistics there are aproximately 11,998 people in prisons and jails at any moment during the average year.

That leaves just two people to do the workk--- You and me... and you're sitting there reading this note!
