Just a funny quote

    Hi, all! I am subscribed to several business newsletters and sometimes they have funny quotes in them. This is from a newsletter from "Big Al" Schreiter and I thought it was funny considering the gas prices today!

    A recent study conducted by Harvard University found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year.

    Another study by the American Medical Association found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.

    This means Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon.


    Sounds like we may get better mileage from alcohol. Somebody pass the the bottle this way! LMBO

      My old car got 10 miles out of a bottle of tequila.  Enough to get me to a gas station!  LMBO

      They put that alcohol additive into our gasoline now.  But that old Ford would run on anything.

      I should do a hub about him, he only broke down where it was convenient.
