Economy fulfills every mother’s dream and forces kids, grandkids to move back home

meet the fockers

One big happy crowded family.

What do you get when you combine two parents, at least one graduated kid, grandpa, Uncle Jack, and a boyfriend or two? Your new recession family!

Unemployed kids have been journeying home for awhile now. And when you factor in all those poor couples living in sin and the grandparents who can’t survive off their social security checks, you got yourself one hell of an extended living situation.

According to new census data, family households added about 3.8 million extended family members, from adult siblings and in-laws to cousins and nephews from 2005 to 2009. Extended family members now make up 8.2% of family households.

Porta pottys for everybody!

  1. On the one hand, I do feel having larger families living together is a good idea. On the other hand, these grads already screwed up their lives and have debt that they shouldn’t have for that situation, so that sucks.

    Hopefully soon enough these asshole politicians and media loudmouths will start admitting that it isn’t the fault of the younger generation, but that the older generations and this society now has systemic problems that have created this mess, and we need to do something about it.
