"No, you're too emaciated to work here now. You'll just drop things!

Nov. 2009 - The bailout recovery has finally come full circle as the recipients have finally stabilized their companies and are ready to rehire their workers. A shock came about, however, when it was found out that most of their old workers had either starved to death or were homeless and couldn't be found.

"It was surprising to us." said Chief Investor Charles Fatbelly, speaking at the 'Back On Top' banquet for top Wall Street Executives while munching on pheasant under glass. "I thought there was supposed to be a trickle down of some sort. Oh, well, we'll just import some people from India."

"I guess this will slow us down a bit" said Avarice Granger, a CEO attended the gala 'Banks 'R Us' festivities on a huge yacht off of Grand Cayman Island. "Perhaps it is a hidden blessing as many of them would be too emaciated or frostbitten to work anyway. It will be hard to get new workers from Central America and train them to be smart enough to handle complex money situations even though they themselves will never experience more than survival wages in their lives."
