Joke’s on us

Pete Cashmore has collected some of the jokes about bankers that have been making the rounds.

Here’s one:

A man is stuck in traffic. He asks a police officer about the hold-up and he replies: “The head of the Bank Of England is so depressed about the economy he’s stopped his car and is threatening to douse himself with petrol and set himself on fire. So we’re taking up a collection for him.” The man asks: “How much have you got so far?” The policeman replies: “About 40 gallons, but a lot of people are still siphoning.”

The fact is, after the taxpayer bail-outs and the resumption of business as usual, the banks are even bigger and more likely to precipitate a financial crisis than they were before.

I guess the joke’s on us.
