Price of Jelly Baby Shares Go Up on Playground

Funny story written by Inhopeless

Sunday, 30 January 2011

BIRMINGHAM - On the Playground Stock Exchange (PGSE), the price of Jelly Babies (JEB) has risen due to the drop in sales of Smarties (SMT).

JEB reached a high in 2010, however it was deflated upon the news that sales of Jawbreakers (JBR) were picking up due to high demand.

"Well, it is good," said Eddie Waits, 10, "I am the sole shareholder and seller of JEB, and this means that the board will be happy. Profits are up by over 200% this quarter."

On the Secondary School and Sixth Form Courts Stock Exchange (SSSFCSE), nearly 12km away, interest in Sally Smith (SAL) has risen nearly 700% among male traders after SAL was entered into the SSCSE two days ago.

"I guess the interest is good," said Smith, "I'm getting a lot of looks from people willing to buy some shares. The company is a down-to-earth company, and in any case, if I want a merger, I need a company that shares my views, and likes the interior working of SAL, not just the share price or the look of it."

SAL had brokered a merger with George Hills (GEI), a corportation known for its friendly attitude, however it has been subjected to much brutal attacks by other companies. GEI shares has shot up in value, after which some companies attempted to block the merger, and others tried to make the merger occur efficiently.

As of press time, a successful meeting with both parties at Luigi's Restuarant, had resulted in a merger.
