Jesus hates the economy

Sheesh, I'm so freakin' clueless...I'd been trying to call the haircut joint for a over an hour, but they just wouldn't pick up. So, I head out to get a docking station for the iPhone to put in my shop, but that joint is also closed. I notice lots of other places are shuttered as well. I'm thinking, wow the economy is REALLY getting bad if all these places have gone out of business. It then dawns on me that this is easter Sunday...d'uh!

Maybe after working 80 hr weeks for months on end, the slave wage earners voted to finally have a day of rest!
