NEW YORK, N.Y. - UPDATE1 Mr. Rockenfella announced today, to a large crowd on the street, that bankers here are turning to the public for a bailout. Billions of dollars just can't fill the bill for this item.
"Many of us bankers here are misplacing the little long forks that go with their fondue sets. Unable to find stores that still sell this quality merchandise, we are turning to you, the public for support. If you have any of the little long forks that go with fondue sets, please bring them to the Empire State Building at 7:00 this evening", he bellowed out to a huge crowd of people attempting to withdraw money from his bank.
Later that day, at the Empire State building the banks possessions had been placed on the curb. It seems the bank was unable to keep up with the mortgage there.
In fact, the mortgage registered "fully dead". And nobody showed up with the little long forks.
