The Economy of Fun


1. The  US has made a new weapon that destroys people but keeps the building standing,. Its called the stock market.

2. Do you have any idea how cheap stocks are ?? Wall Street is now being called Wal Mart Street.

3. The difference between a pigeon and a  London investment banker . The pigeon can still make a deposit on a BMW.

4. What's the difference between a guy who lost everything in  Las

Vegas and an investment banker ?  A tie 

5. The problem with investment bank balance sheet is that on the left side nothing's right and on the right side nothing's left.

6. I want to warn people from Nigeria who might be watching our show, if you get any e mails from  Washington asking for money, it's a scam. Don't fall for it.

7. Bush was asked about the credit crunch. He said it was his favourite candy bar.

8. The rescue bill was about 450 pages. President Obama's copy is even thicker. They had to include pictures. 

9. President Obama's response was to support some small business owners in America. The small business owners are General Motors, General Electric and Century 21.

10. What worries me most about the credit crunch, is that if one of my cheques is returned stamped 'insufficient   funds'.  I  won't know whether that refers to mine or the bank's.
