“The economy is so bad that CEOs are now playing miniature golf”

“The economy is so bad that CEOs are now playing miniature golf” is a jocular saying that has been printed on several images. A stereotype is that the chief executive officers of companies spend a lot of time on the golf course.
       
“So how bad is the economy? (...) CEOs are now playing miniature golf” was printed in the New York (NY) Post on March 24, 2009. “How bad is the economy? ... CEOs are now playing miniature golf” was posted on Twitter by Jack Krupansky on March 30, 2009.
   
Authorship is unknown. The joke is usually included in a collection with other “How bad is the economy?” jokes.
