HOW TO INVITE DEPRESSION
A man lived by the side of the road and sold hot dogs
He w as hard of hearing so he had no radio.
He had trouble with his eyes so he read no newspapers
But he sold good hot dogs.
He put up signs on the highway telling how good
He stood by the side of the road and cried: "Buy a
hot dog. Mister.”
And people bought.
lie increased his meat and bun orders.
He bought a bigger stove to take care of his trade.
He got his son home from college to help him.
But then something happened ....
His son said, "Father, haven’t you been listening
to the radio?
There’s a depression on.
I’he European situation is terrible.
The Domestic situation is worse.”
Whereupon the father thought. "Well, my i son’s
been to college. He read the papers and
lie listens to the radio, and he ought to know.”
So the lather cut down on his meat and bun orders.
Took down his advertising signs.
And no longer bothered to stand out on the highway
to sell hot dogs.
And his hot dog sales fell almost overnight.
• You’re right son.” the father said to the boy.
‘M e certainly are in the middle of a great depression’
