Irrational exuberance? Perhaps...

Planet Earth (Zzzz News Agency) - A bullish trend for the month of August has insiders whispering that this could be the most prolific month yet for TheSpoof.com.

Senior administrator Mark Lowton is keeping tight-lipped about quarterly projections, which leads many of the world's leading spoofologists to conclude that there could be a "rosy-aroma-in-Stankville" on the horizon.

After disappointing worker productivity numbers for July (which a few avant-garde economists believe actually caused the recent downward spiral in the world's stock markets), August is shaping up to become the hottest month on record.

"They are already at 700% of last August's figures," chimed in Alan Greenspan via a Deutsche Bank interpreter. "Yet they are only halfway through the month."

Some skeptics have called it a case of 'irrational exuberance', but they are likely trying to influence the numbers to their advantage -- timing it so that they can buy more Spoof! stock at the lowest price per share. This has many investors drooling with anticipation and greed.
