Up his own arse forever

It is very gratifying to learn that on a day when many cynics were thinking that the financial markets were in irreversible collapse, and the wise men running our banks had been shown up to be morons that sanity still prevails. Someone has just paid £9.6 million for a shark in formaldehyde. There are obviously still people out there who recognise good value and show shrewd economic acumen.

Ha, Ziggi stole my answer.

I am surprised that it took this long for the house of cards to fold...
those greedy twats have been stacking it on whisper thin completely fabricated, unsound principles, since I first started following their avaricial chicanery when the Gold Standard was dropped back in the Nixon era.

I didn't see traders jumping out of buildings like they are supposed to.
Pity.

Now I shall go and watch Wall Street and root for young Bud Fox as Greedy Gord Gecko gets his comeuppance.

Googled 'Rupert Murdoch' and found this. Terribly disappointed . . . .
