Update on Banking crisis... news from Japan



Quote:
Following the problems in the sub-prime lending market in America and the run on HBOS in the UK, uncertainty has now hit Japan .

In the last 7 hours Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches. Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.

Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black. Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal.

Lemonade Stand is right over there....incidentally this is an old, old joke that originally did the rounds during the Japanese property/banking crisis of the early to mid 90's.

How dare somebody make a joke in FYM! This is serious business, people. No humour allowed.

Daniel, maybe you need to just get off the toilet and answer the bloody phone!



(Saw that on a toilet door at Melbourne University. Would've pissed myself laughing if, you know, I hadn't already been on the toilet.)

I apologise on Daniel's behalf for not having the foresight to think about that
