SNL Financial Advice: Don't Buy Stuff You Cannot Afford!
From the "only funny because it's true" file, I present to you the straight dope on how to cut down your debt. Thanks for the tip from my favorite personal finance couple James and Miel. Click here to see the full SNL skit (video plays right after jump).
Wife: "If you don't have any money you should not buy anything.... hmmm... sounds interesting."
Husband (rolling his eyes): "Sounds confusing."
Wife: "There's a whole section here on how to buy expensive things using money you save."
Husband (really skeptical now): "And where would you get this 'saved money'"
Wife: "What if I want something and I don't have any money?"
Financial Advisor: "You don't buy it."
Husband (confused): "Let's say I don't have enough money to buy something. Should I buy it anyway?"
Financial Advisor (patronizing): "Nooooooo."
