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, coiurtesy of Saturday Night Live. Read the full SNL skit transcript, or check out these particularly funny snippets:
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."
