I’m not usually one to dole out advice on Pants in a Can.
I mean, I’m not certain that any advice that I’d give could be considered sound. I just talk about what I’m doing, what I’ve done, why I’m doing it, and why I’ve done it.
For the most part, it’s worked out pretty well for me.
If you want to mimic the way I successfully got myself out of debt, you know, follow my lead, by all means, go right ahead!
Of course, I write this post a mere three days after offering some real estate advice… Go figure?

The comic itself is pretty stupid, as expected, but the fortune at the bottom still makes me smile to this day.
Happy is one who eats not the yellow snow.
Now that’s sound advice.
Maybe it’s that hint of Yoda-ness that strikes me, I dunno, but I wish fortune cookies would have such funny messages.
