They took ‘er economy

I’m not suggesting you watch the entire South Park “recession” episode (Margaritaville) because, well, it’s entirely unsuitable for viewing at work or home, it’s offensive and gross. However, if those things don’t bother you, there are some classic scenes that satirically capture the zeitgeist of the moment and that will send milk up through the nostrils of slightly off-centered people. Again, I don’t even recommend that you watch this embedded :59 second clip from it (especially while drinking milk).:
