Catching Up: Humor and Miscellany

Imgaine if Republicans realized that we got Reagan confused with Eisenhower.... Would we hear comments like these? According to RNC chairman Priebus: “When I heard about Eisenhower's presidential accomplishments—holding down the national debt, keeping inflation in check, and fighting for balanced budgets—it hit me that we'd clearly gotten their names mixed up at some point.” Gingrich might say: "It's absolutely mortifying to suddenly realize that the man you had long credited as a champion of fiscal conservatism actually tripled the national debt and signed the largest peacetime tax hike in U.S. history." Yes, that's the Onion.

Elliephant recently discovered that I linked to their list of reasons why “you might be an economist if…” a while back and brought a drove of people here. In retaliation, here is some follow up humor from the comments:
Female economists reject single men.
"An economist is a surgeon with an excellent scalpel and a rough-edged lancet, who operates beautifully on the dead and tortures the living." -- Nicholas Chamfort
Learning economics through Monopoly: the perils of deregulation combined with wanton money printing leading to depression and bankruptcy. The excerpt at the link is easily the best part of the article to which it links.

What if you would be shot  if you couldn't do advanced mathematics under pressure?
