This is funny. It is a formula to figure out how many purses one is entitled to own, given her budget, alcohol consumption, calls to mother or visits to church. (Income in K /divided by/ age) + (Drinks consumed per week - minus- either of these/ whichever applies most to you: how often you went to church last year, shopped a sale before noon last year, or how many times a week you call your mother. Example: ($30K salary/30 years old =1) + (5 drinks - 2 calls home or two church visits or 2 sales before noon =3) 1 + 3 = 4 purses See: http://handbags.wetpaint.com/page/What+is+the+right+number+of+purses+to+own. Works every time!
