Lighten Up

Great thing about being unemployed during a depression is, ads are aimed straight at you. Feeling broke? No problem – it’s totally in! Suddenly, I don’t feel slightly ill thinking about eating fish n’ chips for $1.69 – I feel like I can afford the Coke too! For about 20 weeks, anyway. (If you don’t know what the 20 weeks refers to, well, you don’t get your unemployment in Maryland, do you?)

With that in mind… I was recently interviewed by The Onion. Here’s a look inside my state of mind.

And, just because the internet’s full of silliness, might as well save on the Super Bowl.
