For a couple years I 've been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much pressure from my job, but now I found out the real reason: I'm tired because I'm overworked. The population of this country is 52 million. 29 million are retired. That leaves 23 million to do the work. There are 12 million in school, which leaves 17 million to do the work. Of this there are 9 million employed by the federal government, leaving 8 million to do the work. 2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 5.2 million to do the work. Take from the total the 3,800,000 people who work for State and City Governments and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work. At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work. Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me. And you're sitting and reading funny stories.
