Laughing at the Bankers expense

January 5, 2009

The jokes I hear going around:

  • What’s the question most bank managers are asking these days? “Do you want fries with that?”
  • What’s the difference between a bank manager and a pigeon? A pigeon can still put a deposit on a Porsche
  • How do you get a banker out of a tree? Cut the rope
  • How many bankers does it take to change a lightbulb? One, but only when he’s finished stacking in aisle 5

There is even now a musical (Crunch: The Musical) and a pantomime (Dick Whitington) taking a poke at the Bankers. The pantomime depicts the Bankers as the new pantomime villains. Oh no their not..“. It turns out they really are the villains with the hedge fund manager Bernard Madoff aka ‘Madeoff’ because he Madeoff with all the money. If you can’t afford the ticket because of the Bankers excess why not buy the new Banker tee-shirt:


If it was not so serious it would be funny. Laughter, as always, brings great relief.
