Investing in your future... one beer can at a time

There's an investment strategy making the rounds on the Internet. Don't worry... it's not a fraud. Unlike so many of the "investment" banks on Wall Street.

If you had purchased $1,000 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago, you would have $49 left.

With Fannie Mae, you would have $2.50 left of the original $1,000.

With AIG, you would have less than $15 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drunk all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214 cash.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. It's called the 401-Keg!

Thanks for passing this along to me, Nay! Now if you'll excuse me... I must go out and buy a metric ton of beer. In cans of course. After all... I'm investing in my future.

The only beer I drink from a can is Oskar Blues. Otherwise it's all bottles! Now if I lived in those states that give me 10 cents for every bottle I return then I'd have enough to another beer run by now.

Some people invest in fine wines. I'm starting to invest in fine aged beers.

Reminds me of that old Seinfeld episode...

Apparently smuggling them to higher paying states is a crime.

Ahh, one of my favorite Seinfelds. You know, an even better option is to get a job in beer, and that way the beer is free, plus you get redemption value.
