    Man, Are We Dumb

    You know those ridiculous gasoline prices that we are presently paying?  You know... because of rising costs, hurricanes, and such?
    Well, I'm here to tell you - consumers are DUMB.
    IRVING, Texas - Exxon Mobil Corp. had a quarter for the record books. The world's largest publicly traded oil company said Thursday high oil and natural-gas prices helped its third-quarter profit surge almost 75 percent to $9.92 billion, the largest quarterly profit for a U.S. company ever, and it was the first to ring up more than $100 billion in quarterly sales.
    Net income ballooned to $9.92 billion, or $1.58 per share, from $5.68 billion, or 88 cents per share, a year ago.

    Hyperinflated profits make Baby Jesus cry.
