Daffy Math and You: a Study in B0rking the Economy

by Smitty

Mac Beach points to an un-embeddable two minute clip that is well worth your time. Someone with a clue tries to explain to his parents (symbolizing Pelosi and Reid for our purposes) elements of basic arithmetic.

The results would be funny if we weren't awash in enough red ink to sink the Great White Fleet. Bonus points for any commenters who can come up with the IMDB reference on this.

Props to Steve & Steve in the comments, for identifying Ma and Pa Kettle Back on the Farm (1951) as the source.
Anonymous: your link was also appreciated, and we'll offer a shout out to the whole inter-tubes in the hopes of reaching the proper nameless one.
