In tough times ... you gotta keep on laughing.

I haven’t posted in awhile, simply because I couldn't find anything uplifting to write about. And I didn't feel like compounding the economic doom and gloom in my blog post. What’s the point of writing about the shitty economic times we're in? Why make people feel worse than they already are? Although I went to the mall over the weekend and I couldn’t find a blasted parking space! It was jam packed with shoppers … no recession at Sherway Mall that’s for sure!

So in dire times like these, it’s best to laugh. And thankfully our dear family friend, Mr. Peter Zeeeee, forwarded these new stock market terms that will surely put a smile on your face. So enjoy life, always laugh and do what I do … don’t open your financial statements until 2010!

CFO-- Corporate Fraud Officer.
BULL MARKET -- A random market movement causing an investor to mistake himself for a financial genius.
