Can Money Buy Happiness?

Survey Says Yes!

Many people believe that money can't buy happiness while others believe that money CAN buy happiness. Who is right ...?

A survey of 1 million Americans shows that 95% of those surveyed believe money CAN buy happiness. The Giddyap Happiness Poll, released today, shows that only 5% believe money cannot buy happiness. The 5% who believed that money can't buy happiness were either rich ... or dumb.

Among people who thought that money can buy happiness the following reasons were given: if you had a lot of money you can buy or build your dream house, you can afford college tuition, you can drive a fine luxury vehicle, you can tell you boss to take-this-job-and-shove-it, you can feed your family AND afford medical insurance, and you can be popular and have a lot of friends who love you.

A spokesperson for Therapists Of The Rich And Famous stated, "If you are poor and crazy, people will say you are a menace to society. If you are rich and crazy, people will say you are simply eccentric."

Whether or not you believe that money can buy happiness, it is a well-known fact that happiness can't buy money.

The above headline and story is not true. It was made up, by the author, solely as comedy, with no intent to harm or offend. Any of it which turns out to be true, in whole or in part, is purely coincidental ... and would be even funnier.
