Pawsitively frightening!!

With the recent problems in the stock market I decided to check how my 401 K9 plan was doing.  So I dug through my pawrents' pile of mail and found my most recent statements.

OH. MY. DOG. Are you kidding me???  My 401 K9 plan has just plummeted!!  What am I going to do? How can I retire to my comfy couch and munch on carob cookies and bully sticks to my heart's desire?
Desperate times call for desperate measures...

Hi, Toffee!
Our country has had those economical problems for years and years.
I think we are used to it!
But, I like your idea. I hope you don't mind if I copy it!

I'd put all my money into cheese stocks. If it plummets it'll still be tasty. I've eaten things off the floor before.
