“I heard my brother and his friends arguing the other day over this question: How much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
What do you expect from guys in their 20s who regular watch Sponge Bob Square Pants, then Green Acres, every Thursday night over beers. I think this is why we’re in an economic recession.
Strangely, I did pick up an idea from one of his friends. This guy has a decent job in Evergreen Park, but otherwise is as stupid as my brother. Anyway, he’s always spending money on stupid stuff and then short of cash to pay his rent, for food, insurance, and other things. So when he gets in a scrape, he gets a car title loan to help him catch up. He goes on an austerity budget, pays the loan back, then the next thing he does is buy a playstation or something.
Well I needed some money a few weeks ago, so I asked him where people go for car title loans. Turns out, they’re all online now. So I went to Austin Title Loans, filled out the application, and I got the money in a day. Could not have been easier.
Then he asked me for a date. I told him no, I didn’t want to deprive him of time with Sponge Bob and his friends.
