How are Americans handling their stimulus check?

Posted at 10:15 AM on May 16, 2008 by Sanden Totten

The check is in the mail . . . or for many Americans, already in the pocket. What are we doing with the money?

Buying ponies. Or getting our teeth pulled. Or investing it in really awesome arcade games.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. If you are hard up for creative ideas on how to spend your check, click over to How I Spent My Stimulus. It's a running commentary from average citizens on how they plan to stimulate (or not) the economy. It's also like reading a mini-novel on someone's life situation, like this entry.

Much like the comments for our recent YouTube video, folks are stopping by to discuss and diss (mostly diss) the whole idea of stimulus checks. Still, people seem more than happy to get the money. And you really shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth . . . or a gift pony.
