Without any notice, Murphy started getting a $500 check every month. So he started cashing them.
It turns out the government made a mistake with the address. The checks were intended for another person with the exact same name.
Murphy then received a notice that he had to pay back $6,000. Visibly upset, he complained to his friend Dingo, an accountant.
Dingo asked: "Murphy, didn't you wonder why you were receiving checks for doing absolutely nothing?"
Murphy answered: "I just assumed the Democrats were back in power."
