Gas Versus Printing Ink (Repost)

Trying to find something funny in the absurdity of it all .......................

The price of Gas versus Printer Ink

 All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap; it just illustrates how outrageous some prices are....

 You will be really shocked by the last one!

(At least, I was...)

 Compared with Gasoline......

 Think a gallon of gas is expensive?

 This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective to other things we buy.

 Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 ... $10.32 per gallon

 Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ..........$9.52 per gallon

 Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 ..... $10.17 per gallon

 Ocean Spray 16 oz $125 ......... $10.00 per gallon

 Brake Fluid 12 oz $315 ...... $33.60 per gallon

 Vick's Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 ... $178.13 per gallon

 Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 .. $123.20 per gallon

 Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 ....... . $25.42 per gallon

 Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 .....$84.48 per gallon

And this is the REAL KICKER...

 Evian water 9 oz $1.49..$21.19 per gallon! $21.19 for WATER and the buyers don't even know the source

 (Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

 Ever wonder why printers are so cheap?

So they have you hooked for the ink.

Someone calculated the cost of the ink at...............

(you won't believe it....but it is tru e........)

$5,200 a gal. (five thousand two hundred dollars)

 So, the next time you're at the pump,be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or God forbid, Printer Ink!

  Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...

 And - If you don't pass this along to at least one person,

you r muffler will fall off!!

 Okay, your muffler won't really fall off...but, you might run out of toilet paper.

 Thanks Barry & Louise D.
