Here's why Canadians are so tired...

For a couple years people been blaming it on lack of sleep, not enough sunshine, and too much pressure from the job, ear wax build-up, poor blood or any number of reasons.

Now for the real reason they're tired; they're overworked.

To explain:

The population of Canada is 30 million. 11 million are retired, leaving 19 million to do the work. There are 5.5 million in school, leaving 13.5 million to do the work.

Of this there are 3 million are employed by the federal government, leaving 10.5 million to do the work. 1 million are in the armed forces, preoccupied with killing Terrorists, leaving 9.5 million to do the work.

Take off another 7 million people who work for Provincial and Municipal Governments, and that leaves 2.5 million to do the work. At any given time, there are 476,000 people in hospitals, leaving 2,024,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons and 812,000 on Employment Insurance and Welfare. That leaves just two people to do the work.

You and me.

And there you are sitting on your butt, at your computer, reading jokes.

Nice! Real nice!
