economist jokes

Got sent a link to a page of economist jokes today. Some of them are really good. Two of my favourites:
  1. I know that economics is ruling my life when:

    a) I tried to calculate my 3 year old son’s discount rate by seeing how many sweets he would require to be promised to him after dinner to be equivalent to one sweet before dinner.

    b) I spent one hour in a toy shop making up over 20 bundles of toys that could be purchased for $25 and then asked my son to select one of these bundles.

A lot of the jokes are accessible even to people who know nothing about economics, but the more you know about economics, the more funny they get.
