Stephen Colbert: How Bad is the Economy?

I loved this quote from Stephen Colbert on his show The Colbert Report:

“How bad is our economy? Well, I’ll give you my two cents, which used to be a dollar.” – Stephen Colbert, The Colbert Report

While it’s not necessarily true that a dollar is now worth two cents, I think it’s a great joke about the US economy right now.
