As if everything you see on the news every single day...

weren't proof enough that our economy is totally and completely in the toilet, allow me to present to you what happened to me today:

Jessica and I went to Big City Soup for lunch. If you don't know, this has always been the best soup place because not only is the soup delicious, but you always get a little cup of soup and then you get a roll and then you also get this darling little individually wrapped piece of Tillamook cheddar cheese. Just like, two bites worth of cheese. But it is pretty much one of my favorite things.

So, we go, and it's the kind of place where you walk up, tell them what you want and take your tray to your table. So we pay, and we're walking to the table with our soup and we both kind of turn back to the girl at the same time, and we're all - But... the cheese? And she says - Oh god, it's 70 cents extra now.

And I looked at her and I said - Obama '08. And she said - I know.
