Help for the confused...

Perhaps you are wondering what the economic meltdown is all about.  I hope this helps. [Adult language]

No, really, It's like when the Daddy says to the Mommy. "Oh Baby, lets buy this big house," because he thinks if he buys a big house he'll get more fun time in the nice new bedroom. Then she says,"but Honey, how will we pay the mortgage?" And he says, "Oh, don't worry, Baby, I'll take care of it." And she says, "Are you sure Honey?" Then he says "I told you I'll take care of it."
So, they buy the house and have fun in the bedroom until he gets laid off and she realizes the house is worth less than they owe on the mortgage. Then they end up getting a bailout from her Big Brother to hang on to the house, but eventually he runs out of money to lend and they lose the house and that's the end of the fun in the bedroom.
