Why Canadians Are So Tired...

(Someone sent me this. It's funny because it's so true...)

For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep, not enough sunshine, and too much pressure from my job, ear wax build-up, poorblood or anything else I could think of. Now I've found out the real reason

I'm tired because I'm overworked!

Here's why:

The population of Canada is 30 million. 11 million are retired, that leaves 19 million to do the work.

There are 5.5 million in school, which leaves 13.5 million to do the work.

Of this there are 3 million employed by the federal government, leaving 10.5 million to do the work.

1 million are in the armed forces, preoccupied with killing terrorists, which leaves 9.5 million to do the work.

Take from that total the 7 million people who work for Provincial and city Governments, and that leaves 2.5 million to do the work.

At any given time, there are 476,000 people in hospitals, leaving 2,024,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons and 812,000 on Employment Insurance and Welfare.

That leaves just two people to do the work:

You and me.

And there you are sitting on your ass, at your computer, reading jokes.


Real nice.

It's good. But to tell you the truth, I worked in an office ten years ago and saw something simular to this. I appreciate your effort though. Allan.

Allan, I said "Someone sent me this". (wouldn't I have looked stupid if I said I made it up...)

I can't help it if the person who sent it to me is ten years behind the times...come to think of it, he does wear tight designer jeans and listens to Duran-Duran...
