Laughter in middle of stock market madness

A blogger from, sent me a link to one of her posts containing funny passages about the market crisis.

Make sure you visit her blog (she writes very well, good insight, she seems to have had a professional journalist training, and I gather that she is from a top school.

Excerpt from ( Take on Recent Market Changes Taking Stock of Market Terms):

Stock Analyst: The idiot who just downgraded your stock.

Broker: The person who leaves others broke.

Bear Market: A 6 to 18 month period when the kids get no allowance, the wife gets no jewellery, and the husband gets no sex.

Cash Flow: How your money moves as it disappears down the toilet.

Standard & Poor: Your life in a nutshell.

    Bailout 2008, a poem by David Jeffrey

    Like a bloodied warrior,
    laying broken and torn.

    Like a dying soldier, hopeless and forlorn.

    But the blood, it be green,
    the color of money.

    And the soldier is an economy,
    and it is anything but funny.

    Broken are it's people and shattered are their dreams.

    Thanks to the ultra rich and their full proof schemes.

    It is a tragedy with more pain to come.

    Finance will be Hell, and their wills will be done.
