Tuesday Humor: Don't Just Sit There, Flip Something

Tyler Durden's picture


Whatever one thinks of the New Normal economy, one sure can't say there is a shortage of flipping opportunities.

Especially since there are so many people to flip off.

Frohe Weihnachten, Gold Hundin.

And a Happy New Year, though I don't like the odds.

I have a cousin in her late twenties, who has people throwing hundreds of k of dollars at her to buy rental properties (puget sound area), she said these people are expecting 20-30 percent return, she tells them 8-10 is a realistic percentage... This is not going to end well.

Well, seeing how that's in California - I'm not too surprised. What else is there to do, except work in technology or entertainment. (Mostly adult entertainment.)

Taking the sign in its entirety--what it says, how it's written, where it's posted, etc.--says so much about the condition of the American people.


"First they rob you of your Liberty and product, then your savings. Then they come for your dignity and soul. Eventually they come for your life."

Flipping only works if there are enough greater fools to flip to.  That flipping works in America as a career is an indictment of the stupidity, greed and corruption that has become endemic to America.

As they say in Hollywood, "No one has ever lost money underestimating the intelligence of the American people."

Until they do, of course. Even stupidity doesn't go in a straight line forever.

only in merica........ 'McDonald’s website advises staff NOT to eat fast food'

''McDonald's doesn't think its employees should eat the food they serve.

The fast food giant has advised employees to avoid meals with burgers and fries and to eat healthier options like salad and sandwiches.

The advice was dispensed on the now-infamous McResource Line, the employees-only website that has told workers to sell their things and get second jobs to make ends meet.''

Flip paper for gold, silver, brass, lead, copper, and tools from Springfield - the Garand line of fine implements. 

Fuck paper, bitchez.

is the sign mocking the house flipping or the burger flipping? Perhaps the phone number directs to Hamburger University.

Still flipping guns and ammo a full year after the made-for-TV Sandy Hook Hoax aired, but the market isn't terribly robust at the moment.

I almost forgot how funny Flip Wilson was...

Used to watch his show every week!

I thought flipping houses went out after '07!

i came down to socal for the holiday.  on the radio, there are ads for people offering workshops training people to flip houses.  of course they were promising making 50k in less than three months.

sounded just like a University of Pheonix scam ad.

I was in Socal over the weekend too (hadn't been there in a couple of years) and was amazed to see all the 'flip houses and get rich bitch' billboards. Thought to myself, 'what the fuck is going on here...'

Saw some billboards for realty companies offering the deal of "we sell your house within 59 days, or we buy it." Sketchy sketch sketch.

Chile, Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica, and Uruguay are looking good right now.

Rent for a year is my advice.

Often better to hunker down where you're comforatable.

Latino culture can be challenging, especially when it comes to having guns.

You can bring your dogs but your favourite .45, not so easy.

You really can't "flip" real estate anymore. It's way too hard to get mortgages.
