For a couple years I've been blaming it on
lack of sleep and too much pressure from my
job, but now I found out the real reason:
I'm tired because I'm overworked.
The population of the USA is 237 million.
104 million are retired.
That leaves 133 million to do the work.
There are 85 million in school, which leaves
48 million to do the work.
Of this there are 29 million employed by the
federal government, leaving 19 million to do
2.8 million are in the Armed Forces,
which leaves 16.2 million to do the work.
Take from the total the 14,800,000 people
who work for State and City Governments and
that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.
At any given time there are 188,000 people
in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.
Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.
That leaves just two people to do the work.
You and me.
And you're sitting at your computer reading jokes.
