Stick a fork in that trend. It's not only over, but it's rolling over.

How to Fork Someone's Yard Prank

If you want to get a little more creative, buy some pickles (or anything that will stick on a fork), and add them to the forks.

Genius! That's just what this economy needs. More pickles!

Our Economic Pickle

It is often thought that college graduates can escape these unfortunate wage trends. But college graduates — hit by the bursting of the tech bubble in the late 1990s and then by the deep recession — have been hit hard, too. Seventy percent of the nation’s college grads have had their after-inflation hourly wages decline since 2000, according to the Economic Policy Institute, with the typical graduate experiencing a 3.1 percent decline.

The future's so bright I gotta whistle!

Mr Slippery,

Yeah, I stole the sunshine. I admit it. There's no need to worry though. I locked it inside a LeMarchand's Box for safe keeping. What's the worst that could happen?

Yikes! ;)
