I Really Hope Brutus Is the Only One Wearing a Sweater
February 3, 1978
The average salary in 1977 was $13,500, broken down that's about $6.50 an hour. Maybe Veeblefester is talking about a five dollar an hour raise which would be $11.50 an hour making Brutus' new salary nearly $24,000. I mean, Veeblefester is clearly not talking about that, but that'd be a good raise.
I hate to break it to Brutus and anybody who wears Christmas/holiday sweaters but all of those sweaters are ugly. Even the nice ones. Sorry, I don't make the rules.
