I saw a very awesome clip a few weeks ago. I was a big hit when I showed it to everyone at work when it was my day to tell the joke in our team meeting. Maybe you've seen it, too. It's the one that says Everything's Amazing and Nobody's Happy. You know the part where he mentions that there was once a time where people had to use their own money from the bank to do things, and when the money was gone they just said, "Well, we can't do any more things."
Well, today's theory is in the same vein, and it comes from a British wartime slogan: Make do and mend. Wonder if that would ease our so-called economic woes.
