IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT'S TRUE
From an e-mail I sent to a friend working at Bear Stearns, as we speculated about the current state of the economy:
Remember, I know nothing about this. I don’t balance my checkbook, my credit rating is embarrassing, and I got a D in Macroeconomics 101 in college.I also offered to patronize his street corner when he's selling pencils or apples. Was that mean?
In short, I am qualified to be CEO of Bear Stearns.
Come to think of it, another friend works at Lehman. I think I'm going to get a lot of mileage out of the same joke...
