An Indian goes to Woolworth's in Australia. He finds cat food at
special prices.

He picks a dozen cans of cat food and goes to check out.

The Manager gets suspicious.

He thinks that this guy might not have a cat and will probably feed
cat food to his kids.

He asks the Indian to show him his cat before he could let him have cat food.

The Indian goes home and returns with a cat and gets to buy the cat food.

Next week the Indian finds dog food at special prices. He picks a dozen
cans of dog food and goes to check out. The Manager again gets suspicious. He
thinks that this guy may have a cat but he cannot have a dog and he will
probably feed dog food to his kids. He asks the Indian to bring and show him
the dog before he can let him have dog food. The Indian goes home and
returns with a dog. He gets to buy the dog food.

The following week the Indian comes to Woolworth's with a bag. He asks
the manager to put his hand in the bag.

The Manager puts his hand in the bag, feels some thing slimy and
immediately pulls it out. He shouts at the Indian,
"What the hell ! This is ****, you Idiot !"

The Indian calmly replies, "Yes, now may I buy some toilet paper?

Default Economic Meltdown Explained

The best explanation so far!!!

Mary is the proprietor of a bar in Dublin . She realises that virtually all of her customers are unemployed alcoholics and, as such, can no longer afford to patronise her bar. To solve this problem, she
comes up with new marketing plan that allows her customers to drink now, but pay later. She keeps track of the drinks consumed on a ledger
(thereby granting the customers loans).

Word gets around about Mary's "drink now, pay later" marketing strategy and, as a result, increasing numbers of customers flood into Mary's bar. Soon she has the largest sales volume for any bar in Dublin .

By providing her customers' freedom from immediate payment demands, Mary gets no resistance when, at regular intervals, she substantially increases her prices for wine and beer, the most consumed beverages.
Consequently, Mary's gross sales volume increases massively. A young and dynamic vice-president at the local bank recognises that these customer debts constitute valuable future assets and increases Mary's
borrowing limit. He sees no reason for any undue concern, since he has the debts of the unemployed alcoholics as collateral.

At the bank's corporate headquarters, expert traders figure a way to make huge commissions, and transform these customer loans into
DRINKBONDS, ALKIBONDS and PUKEBONDS. These securities are then bundled and traded on international security markets. Naive investors don't really understand that the securities being sold to them as AAA secured bonds are really the debts of unemployed alcoholics. Nevertheless, the bond prices continuously climb, and the securities soon become the hottest-selling items for some of the nation's leading
brokerage houses.

One day, even though the bond prices are still climbing, a risk manager at the original local bank decides that the time has come to demand payment on the debts incurred by the drinkers at Mary's bar. He so informs Mary.

Mary then demands payment from her alcoholic patrons, but being unemployed alcoholics they cannot pay back their drinking debts. Since, Mary cannot fulfill her loan obligations she is forced into bankruptcy. The bar closes and the eleven employees lose their jobs.

Overnight, DRINKBONDS, ALKIBONDS and PUKEBONDS drop in price by 90%.
The collapsed bond asset value destroys the banks liquidity and prevents it from issuing new loans, thus freezing credit and economic activity in the community.

The suppliers of Mary's bar had granted her generous payment extensions and had invested their firms' pension funds in the various BOND securities. They find they are now faced with having to write off
her bad debt and with losing over 90% of the presumed value of the bonds. Her wine supplier also claims bankruptcy, closing the doors on
a family business that had endured for three generations, her beer supplier is taken over by a competitor, who immediately closes the
local plant and lays off 150 workers.

Fortunately though, the bank, the brokerage houses and their respective executives are saved and bailed out by a multi-billion euro no-strings attached cash infusion from their cronies in Government. The funds required for this bailout are obtained by new
taxes levied on employed, middle-class, non-drinkers who have never been in Mary's bar.

Now, do you understand economics in 2010?

Even the most educated look at me like I came out of a cave when I try to explain to them why something is not right, or sustainable, or profitable in long run, forget about being ethical. The amway/quixtar schemes are a prime example.

I discovered it's an old show...around 2004-05. Moin Akhtar(the impersonator in the above videos) is no more. The videos were posted by Spitfire on the day of his death. Saw a few other episodes too and I was more than impressed. That guy was convincing even while impersonating a woman in terms of looks and voice!! He has a legendary status in Pakistan.

If you found it funny, could you explain it to me ? Didn't get the last line at all.

As mentioned by others, it is an anti-joke .

Please see below blog for a detailed explanation of the same (and some really good jokes in the comments section !!! ) :
