Dead Cat Bounce

“Eeeeee! Bail me out!”


“You gotta!”

“It’s YOUR fault!”

“How’s it MY fault?”

“You were reckless.”

“Think I’m reckless? Bail me out, or I’ll crash!”

“Go ahead.”

Dow Jones down 777.68 in reaction to congressional inaction.

“Told ya.”

“Drama Queen.”

Dow climbs 485.21 points.

“Phew! Cool bounce, huh?”

“Kind of a dead cat bounce.”

“You don’t care about me!”

“Aww, Honey – how about we call it a rescue?”

Let's hope the "rescue" makes a difference for the little guy. Nice to see you back.

Howdy, Lori!

Would be loverly, but unfortunately, the "rescue" is not for, and has absolutely nothing to do with the little guy.

Spartacus Jones said...

Sure it does, Coyote.
The little guy is going to pick up the tab for it.


San said...

Great dialogue, Fe.

Did you happen to read Michael Moore's commentary on the bailout?

CoyoteFe said...

Spartacus Jones - Point taken. But that is not what the little guy is hoping for! We have been routed.

Hallooo, San - I did. He writes each day, and it is a cry in the wilderness, like the voices of the economists who say this plan is nonsense. Sad.
