The Lighter Side of The ‘Credit Crunch’

Laugher is regarded by many as “the best medicine” so what better prescription to help us deal with all the negative news about the economy… 

Last Friday the BBC published a string of reader contributions, taking a look at the lighter side of the credit crunch.  Here’s a taster:

‘Following the problems in the sub-prime lending market in America and the run on Northern Rock in the UK, uncertainty has now hit Japan. In the last 7 days 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. While Samurai Bank are soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank are 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.’

  1. Thank you for the laugh this morning! And they say the British are humorless… oh sorry, that’s the Germans. (It’s a joke people, maybe not a good one, but still a joke!)
