It's also about beer and Ferraris.
Tomorrow is April Fools Day. Time for money jokes. I think this one’s funny, but humor is a fickle thing.
If you think you got one funnier that’s about finances, leave it as a comment below. The money-related joke that most impresses the Debt.com staff will win a $20 Amazon gift certificate.
OK, here goes…
Woman: Do you drink beer?
Woman: How many beers a day?
Man: Usually about 3.
Woman: How much do you pay per beer?
Man: $5.00 which includes a tip.
Woman: And how long have you been drinking?
Man: About 20 years, I suppose.
Woman: So a beer costs $5 and you have 3 beers a day, which puts your spending each month at $450. In one year, it would be approximately $5,400…correct?
Woman: If in 1 year you spend $5,400, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at $108,000, correct?
Woman: Do you know that if you didn’t drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?
Man: Do you drink beer?
Man: So where’s your Ferrari?
