Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:

Dear Mr. President:

Here is the perfect plan to solve the nation’s job, economic and housing crises all at once.

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force – pay them $1 million each with the following stipulations:

1. They retire immediately. Forty million job openings – unemployment fixed.

2. They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered – auto industry fixed.

3. They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – housing crisis fixed.

It can’t get any easier than that.

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress, your Cabinet and their constituents pay their taxes.

a great joke you want to share with the world? Write it up in the WND
Laughlines forum. Who knows? It might be selected as the WND Joke of
the Day – and your wildest dreams will come true.
