The last Punny Poll asked readers like you to choose between time and money. A whopping 75% of votes said time is of the essence while the other 25% would rather be shown the money.

My wife and I will be celebrating our first anniversary this week, and I’ve been thinking about just how far we’ve come since we first met. I was barely in college; she was still in high school.
