Money, Money, Money

With the threat of a recession breathing down our necks, Congress has decided to provide some relief with an economic stimulus package--which will include a tax rebate. Whether this will turn the economy around remains to be seen. But at the very least, it will put a little extra money in all of our pockets. So, today's question is:

What will you do with your tax rebate?

Harold: I've been meaning to broaden my artistic horizons a bit, so I'd really like to buy a new crayon... I've been wanting to get my hands on a nice Burnt Sienna for some time now. That would be sweet.

Mahalia Mouse: Student Loans. Student Freakin' Loans.

Very Hungry Caterpillar: I'm going out to buy some Ben and Jerry's, a handful of Jolly Ranchers, maybe a couple chili cheez dogs... and then some Tums. For some reason my stomach is killing me.

Clifford the Big Red Dog: Four words: World's Biggest Fire Hydrant.

Old Woman (who lived in a shoe): Well, given that I will get an additional rebate for each kid that I have, I should have more money than I know what to do with. The smart thing to do would be to put it all into an interest bearing account to build up a college fund for all these little rascals--but to heck with it. I'm saving the money for my retirement so I can move into a nice high rise someday, maybe something in a nice suede pump.

The Little Engine That Could: I'm hoping to go from being "The Little Engine That Could" to "The Little Engine That Doesn't Have To Anymore." Early retirement, here I come! Whoo! Whoo!

Corduroy: Forget a new button, I'm buying myself a whole new suit from Calvin Klein!

Runny Babbit: I'd hove to lire a theech sperapist. (translation: I'd love to hire a speech therapist.)

and inspiring:

Bunny from Good Night Moon: A damn caterer. I 'm sick to death of having a bowl of mush every night.

Lily: Gucci. This purple plastic purse is so yesterday.
