    The credit crunch

    I was having a conversation with a teacher today, we got onto the subject of money. This is what happened:

    Me: so how has the credit crunch affected you?
    Teacher: It hasnít I have weetabix for breakfast
    Me: Oh **Walks off**

    Are these people for real?

    I don't see the problem.

    Are you offended by the bad joke or that they are unaffected by the 'credit-crunch'?

    a bit of both really, more for the bad joke but i'd take offense if he was unaffected by the credit crunch as a home-ownin', guardian-reading, flipflop-wearing, pc left-of-centre, recycling, grammar-school educated muppet.

    which i'm sure he is.

    maybe i've had a sense of humour bypass, but i fail to see the wit and humour in his little joke....the image someone mocked up of the 'credit crunch' was quite witty....but his 'i eat weetabix' response was neither of those things.

    Weetabix is probably the one cereal that's not crunchy (once you put the milk on) that's why I think his response was quite funny.
