I'M TIRED. Two people do everything!

                        I'M TIRED

Yes, I'm tired.  For several years I've been blaming  it  on 
middle-age,  iron-poor  blood,  lack    of    vitamins,  air 
pollution,  water  pollution,  saccharin, obesity,  dieting, 
under-arm  odor,  yellow  wax build-up, and  a  dozen  other 
maladies  that  make  you  wonder if life  is  really  worth 
living.  But now I find out, tain't that.  I'm tired because 
I'm  overworked.    The  population  of this country is  200 
million.   Eighty-four million are retired.  That leaves 116 
million to do  the  work.    There are 75 million in school, 
which leaves 41 million  to  do  the  work.   Of this total, 
there  are 22 million employed  by  the  government.    That 
leaves 19 million to do the  work.   Four million are in the 
Armed Forces, which leaves 15 million to  do the work.  Take 
from that total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and 
City  Government  and  that  leaves 200,000 to do the  work.  
There are 188,000 in hospitals, so that leaves 12,000 to  do 
the  work.    Now  there are 11,998 people in prisons.  That 
leaves just  two  people  to  do the work.  You and me.  And 
you're sitting there reading this.  No wonder I'm tired.
