Poor People: ‘Trickle-down economics is the best thing that has ever happened to me’


The Trailer Park – “I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again,” Ricky Fontaine said in his dirty, white wife-beater shirt.  “Trickle-down economics is the best things that has ever happened to me.”

Ricky Fontaine, 29, is your local trailer park trash.  Born and raised in a trailer park outside of Detroit, Michigan, Ricky has enjoyed the benefits of trickle-down economics his entire life.

“I was born and raised trailer trash and will die trailer trash,” Ricky said while drinking Busch Light and smoking a Newport cigarette.  “Despite being trailer trash,” Ricky went on, “trickle-down economics is the best thing that has ever happened to me.”

Trickle-down economics is a theory that suggests for every tax dollar not seized from wealthy business owners will end up benefiting the lower class of society in a trickle-down effect.  As an example, the more economic profits a business can generate after taxes, the more it will benefit Ricky Fontaine as these after-tax dollars should in theory be used to stimulate further economic development.

“Yup,” Ricky said while taking a sip of his beer.  “Trickle-down economics is the reason why I am here today sipping on this beer and enjoying the sunshine.”  

Ricky went on to explain how trickle-down economics has vastly improved his life.

“You know that Snap Chat thingy app?  I can now get nudes from chicks all over the world.  Nudes from chicks is called trickle-down economics.  I also got $1,200 in bailout money from the government and used the proceeds to buy beer.  Yup, that’s trickle-down economics too.”

  • Ricky made a list of all the tickle-downed benefits he has received over the years:
    • Cold beer and smokes
    • Unlimited internet kink videos – emphasizing velociraptor kink videos
    • Girlfriend that cooks and cleans
    • Ex-wife that takes care of his children
    • Free Government bailout money
    • Sausage sticks, chicken tenders and fireworks
    • Janet Jackson’s wardrobe mishap
    • Obie Trice’s “Got Some Teeth”

“I’d vote Republican every year if I was registered to vote,” Ricky said.  “Maybe I’ll vote next year.  But I might be passed out.”

Success! You're on the list.
