News, but not the serious kind
Rat meat again? We’re not MADE of money!
Blog Guy, I can’t believe what’s happening to the price of all the necessities! Is there ANY good economic news out there?
I don’t see how that’s good news.
Well, the price of premium rat meat is up, but you don’t want to buy any, so you’re immune to that increase. We economists call that “good” news. It’s having an impact over there in Asia. Did you know Cambodia supplies a ton of live rats a day to Vietnam?
Wow! How many live rats are there in a ton?
It depends. I guess it could just be one really, really, really big one.
