Top 10 Ways the Bad Economy is Affecting the Super Bowl

Okay, my quest for winning a David Letterman “Late Show Online” t-shirt has officially become an obsession. I will keep submitting an entry every week until I win the Holy Shirt and/or Letterman hires me to write for the “Late Show” or CBS presses charges for virtually stalking the intern relegated to compiling the Top Ten Contest winners.

Until then, I will devote my time to getting inside the mind of the aforementioned intern — assuming he or she works alone.

For last week’s topic, “Top 10 Things Overheard at Barack Obama’s Inauguration,” I took a stab with “I heard Michelle leased her dress from Sarah Palin,” but to no avail. Albeit Sara Palin did break the Top Ten with “I wonder if Sarah Palin can see this from her house?”

Close, but no smoking gun.

Undaunted, however, I will continue my quest to win the Holy Late Show Online t-shirt, but again, I cannot do this alone— so I’m soliciting your help, dear reader. I’ve written ten possible entries for this week’s list, and it’s up to you to help me choose the ONE from the list (for I can only submit one) that you think has the best chance of winning this week.

Just think, with your help, all of this could be mine

  1. Definitely 9.

  2. The Postmaster General is trying to scare Congress. He is threatening a mail delivery cut. He said the mail delivery may be cut by one day a week. The Post Office threatens mail delivery cut

  3. Here as a fellow HumorBlogger to say welcome and helllo!

    I like # 10, 2, and 1

  4. All the Late Show is now is an hour long Barack Obama butt kissing show. Dave has to wipe his lips after each show
