Affordable Bankruptcy?

Filed under: Behavior, Economy — cynicalsynapse @ 9:57 pm

Have you ever noticed those signs by the side of the road? You know, the ones that have the answers to life’s most serious problems, like dating or health insurance?

Wish I had a picture of it, but last week I saw one of those signs that said “Affordable Bankruptcy” and then a phone number. Immediately, I thought of the comedian Gallagher and his oft-stated comment, “You people aren’t thinking of this.” Bear in mind, now, that Gallagher postulated the question, “Why would the bank charge you more of what they already know you don’t have any of?” in regard to non-sufficient funds checking account fees.

So, if I’m bankrupt, how can that be affordable? If I had money, I wouldn’t be bankrupt, but if I’m bankrupt, obviously I don’t have money. Seems like mutually exclusive terms to me. And, it reminds me of the comedian, Gallagher. “You people ain’t thinking of this.”
