The economy...

Boy oh Boy... has anyone noticed how bad the economy has been lately?

Double stuff oreo's are no longer double stuffed.

The diameter of a Reese's peanut butter cup has drastically shrunk!

and Imitation Cheese, you know the stuff that is cheaper than real cheese, I would love to know what it is imitating, because it sure as heck isn't cheese.

I went to buy a dress and it said half off. Boy did they mean it when they said half off! It was so short, I know what half they took off.

Designers are using less and less material for underwear, and I know that it is not my butt getting bigger, because my king sized fries are definitely not so king sized anymore.

Mother's Cookies has been cruelly exterminated from our grocer's shelves.

And as for the price of milk, if I am going to pay that much, the price better include a pet cow too!

It used to be cheaper to sew, now it costs more to buy a spool of thread than a t-shirt

Dime stores have become dollar stores and dollars stores have become more like $1.50 - $1.99 stores

Whatever happened to the good old days, where oreo frosting was abundant, and $5.00 could get you a supersized meal through the drive through?


  1. The trick is, go without underwear, make your own buttercream frosting, give up cheese,wear pants instead of dresses, dream about mother's cookies, keep the memory of them fresh in your mind, I don't know what to tell you about milk, I don't think your little farm would hold a cow. Sewing is still cheaper because it turns out to be better quality than ready made and wears longer. Dime stores don't exist where we live anyway. I guess we have to be grateful for the dollar stores. Homemade supersized hamburgers are pretty good. Aren't I a know it all??

  2. I forgot to comment about the effects of the economy situation on a Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. If they have shrunk in diameter we just have to eat twice as many. Have a wonderful day at your little Hillbilly Farm.

  3. ooh I agree twice as many pb cups.
