So what is 42,911,042?
Sounds like a huge number.
Is it - Forty Two Million Nine Hundred Eleven Thousand Forty Two Dollars? No but that is a lot of money.
Sad to say it is the number of Ameriucans on food stamps. As of Oct 2, 2010, another half-million Americans signed up for food stamps, bringing the number to 42,911,042 participants.
Food stamps are the soup lines of the Great Depression.
