Spinner. Printer accessories and supplies contribute to a major part of revenues to the companies that manufacture them.

So, the next time you're at the pump, don't curse our honorable Petroleum minister just be glad your car doesn't run on cough syrup, after shave, coffee, or God forbid, printer ink !
It will be an eye opener if we start looking at consumption of these per month or day.

A liter of each of those liquids last much longer than a liter of fuel, some of them much much longer. Sorry for not letting off our beloved Petroleum minister.

@Spinner, that was some analogy. Never knew printer ink was so expensive. But, when we compare the consumption, petrol will still rule the roost.

Btw, after reading your analogy, it made me feel good that i am running on low cost liquid like petrol. Time for another long drive

He is just highlighting the extremes in pricing of two different products in the same stable. It's not a joke par se but funny to a small extent.

The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. Yes! Life is tough. It takes a lot of our time. Yet at the end of it, what do we get? A DEATH!! What is it? Bonus?
I think the cycle is all the other way round. It has all really gone wrong. Let me put it backway.

We should die first. Get it out of the way. Then, live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're young enough. Then you get a golden watch and you go to work. You work for forty years until you're ready to enjoy your retirement. You retire. Then enjoy doing drugs, alcohol etc...... You party a lot.
Then you get ready to go for your high school. You then go to grade school and you're out of it too. You're a child. You play. You don't have no responsibilities. Then you become a baby. You go into a womb. You spend your last nine months floating.
Then you finish off as a lovely orgasm!!

Wish! Wish! Wish!
