Riding The Wild Bronco

The tape has been bucking like a wild bronco and if you’re still holding long from our entry Tuesday morning then you ought to qualify for some kind of NFR award. The cash price hasn’t yet come due however as apparently this bronco ain’t done bucking just yet. Come to think of it, generally speaking traders actually have a lot in common with those “roughies” or rough stock rodeo riders, who sometimes have been described as being too lazy to work, too jealous to pimp, and too scared to steal.

German Comedy Contest

This may come as a complete shock to you, but this may be the first time in modern history that a German has won a comedy contest, and without British assistance. Yes, just let that sink in for a while. Now I already know what you’re thinking: If this isn’t a clear sign that the West is heading straight into the new Dark Ages then I don’t know what is.

Dr. Doom, who was trying out what must have been his new comedy routine on MSNBC, suggesting that the Dow may at some point touch the 100,000 mark. So Howard snaps a screenshot and puts it on [...]
