Dispossessed and now homeless Americans are jumping for joy over their 70 cents per hour minimum wage raise! The $5.60 extra after 8 hours of work in the salt mines allowed Hobo Joe to buy his family of four a loaf of bread, a stick of butter and a container of milk.
Hobo Joe's wife, Hoboess Josephine told TheSpoof.com: "With all this new found cash, I'se afeared the kids will develop that obesity all US parents are afeared of fo their chilluns!"
Recently unemployed former breadwinner and now breadline stander, Tramp Trampansky wondered if unemployment benefits would also be raised by $5.60 per day. "With that cash cow, I could buy some magic beans and steal the goose that lays the golden eggs", exclaimed Tramp.
When he learned that unemployment benefits have been cut by the Bush administration, he bent over and invited the President to goose him again!
