image for Bankers, Billionaires March On Wall Street
Bankers Bridge

New York, NY-- A well-dressed group of about fifty people threaded its way down Wall Street Saturday, on a sunny October afternoon. The group was made up of bankers, billionaires, and CEOs from some of the largest corporations in the country. Christine Lagarde from the IMF was also there, flying above the crowd on her broomstick. The group wanted to demonstrate their pride in their achievements since the Panic of '08.

"We are the 1%, you are the 99%!" chanted the group in unison. The well-manicured, well-coiffed group was marching towards the Brooklyn Bridge.

Everyone in the group was in a very cheerful mood. Everyone knew that in a few short weeks, the world economy would crash, and they would all make trillions of dollars from the calamity.

When the group of billionaires arrived at the Brooklyn Bridge, they were surprised to see police blocking their way. One of the billionaires threw some spare $100.00 bills at them, and the police soon vanished.

President Obama then made a conference call to all the members of the group, to give them his congratulations on their march.

"We are the 1%, they are the 99%!" shouted the well-manicured, well-coiffed president to his billionaire buddies.
