Who said economists aren't funny?

From the PBS News here.

Funny episode with an economist that make you want to cry. An even sadder read is: Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle you can also watch this as a lecture on Youtube. Charlie, thanks for trying to cheer us up.

That was hooty and a much-needed diversion.
But something struck me funny even before the story aired: Jim Lehrer's stand-in saying "Did you hear the one about the economist who walked into a bar?" It was so serious and monotone. Pretty much the antithesis of funny.
I'll be singing "Old Time Recession" for the rest of the day.
