Its a ploy to look like they have a sense of humor. They really WANT us to keep working, paying taxes, and expanding the economy.

The trick here is to make you laugh at how silly poor retirement planning is, thereby putting you at ease to fail to plan for another few months or years.

Yes, the above...as usual...is sarcasm. I owe you the 50c royalty fee Justin.

Hey, I have no problem with it, and hope this view becomes popular vs. retirement being an entitlement....no doubt some people need something to do and structure their lives, anyway....
