Is it going to be a cold winter?

By

I have just translated this joke.  It appears to have come from out of the country, but I thought it was funny and appropiate for the times.

It was Winter and the indians in a remote reservation asked their new chief, if the coming Winter was going to be cold or mild.

Since this chief had been raised in a modern society, he never learned the old secrets or how to look at the sky, and couldnl't tell wether it was going to happen with the weather.

Just to make sure that his tribe was prepared, he told his members that it was going to be very cold, to go out and collect wood to be prepared.

As the chief was also a practical leader, he had an idea:  he called the Nacional Weather Service and asked:

•-       Is this coming Winter goin to be very cold?

•-       Yes, it appears this coming winter will be very cold.

The chief went back to his people and told them to go out and gather more wood, as it was going to be pretty cold, and they needed to be prepared.   A week later the chief called the National weather service again:

•-       Is it going to be a cold winter?

•-       Yes, very cold.  

The chief returned to his people and told everyone  to go out and gather more wood, as it was going to be a cold winter.  Two weeks later, once again he called the National Weather Service:

•-       Are you absolutely sure that this coming Winter is going to be very cold? 

•-       Absolutely. This is going to be one of the coldest winters that we have known in our lifetimes.

•-       But how can you be so sure?

•-       Because those Indians have been gathering wood like crazy.

So I ask my self:

•-       Is this going to be a long and hard recession?

•-       OF COURSE!!!

•-       How do you know?   

Because those Americans have been selling their stocks and houses like they went crazy ????????

So true.  It's hard to break these cycles and it just becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.  But it will run its course!
