From My Favorite Twittering Blogger, Top of the Ticket at LA Times

Loyal Ticket reader Lydia, one of thousands of newcomers now receiving Ticket alerts via Twitter, sends this brilliant Direct Message suggestion about the nation's looming financial obligations:

"Can we leave the federal deficit just to the generation that wears their pants so low in the mall?"

Additionally, there's a new bumper sticker being sold by the Tennessee Republican Party "to protest the bailout-mad Congress's rush into fiscal madness." We'll add it on the jump (scroll down or click on the "Read more" line below).

And thank you, Lydia. You made our weekend. Anyone else have any recession/depression humor to share?

-- Andrew Malcolm

Okay, this was the best one I found:

How many Chicago School Economists does it take to change a light bulb?

None. If the light bulb needed changing the market would have already done it!

..and as for the other thing there's no rush to visit. It will take some time and I'll let you know when there's something to see. Meanwhile, I hope your health is improving.

OK, let me get this straight. The TN Goppers are making up bumper stickers that say "Honk if you're paying my mortgage"? Right?

Aren't they a little late? For example, don't they remember this bailin' started with the Bushies?

Well, a little humor can't hurt right now...

I'm running out of things to say so I let other bloggers say it for me. This past week of bad vibe has left me stressed and not wanting to do much but watch old mindless crap on TV. But my twittering columnist friend Andrew, does give good tweets and he tweets with humor. I like that in a distinguished looking older man.

Susan I look forward to whatever you create and if I were rolling in dough I'd buy something.

Stella, Goppers is such a good word. And yeah, they are. Check it out.

Good catch, Utah. I always like finding new Tweets to follow. A great resource for bloggers, I'm using it lots.

"Read More" line? Where is it?

Re the bumper sticker: I have been subsidizing GOP mortgages all my life. They get a tax deduction while I pay my taxes to make up for what they don't pay.

Vig, I have LATimes TOT on my side bar as one of my go to bloggers for minute by minute hot stuff. Krugman is there, and so is Malcolm--since both are bloggers I treat them like other bloggers. I didn't post his whole piece, but the read more part sent you to a longer article. Check yesterday's LA Times.

Naj, I've seen this before and it really pisses me off. But I just might post it.

Blue Gal, thank you. I'm now giving a lot of advise and suggestions to Nora ODonnel, D Shuster, and Don Lemmon who is so handsome in his twitter photo it's the main reason I follow him.

Kulkuri, exactly, now it's their turn.
