image for Bankers could be extinct within 10 years - unless we act NOW
A world without bankers is a world without hope

Wall Street, New York - Bankers could be extinct by 2020 - that's the startling prediction one top economist, Peter Dollar-Pound, has made.

"We have to do something now!" claimed Mr Dollar-Pound "We can't just sit around doing nothing! If we don't act now bankers will be extinct within a decade!"

Since the Big Bank Crash 2008, banker numbers have been declining at a rapidly alarming rate. In just one day alone, 5,000 bankers disappeared from New York and a further 3,000 from London. Disappearing with them were various accountants, secretaries, financial advisors, chauffer drivers and cleaners.

Even the world's leading scientist, Tom Cruise, does not know where the bankers and their associates disappeared to. He claims that one day they were here, the next day they were gone "laptops, pens and all".

It is thought that the bankers decline in numbers is due to a decrease in their natural habitat and food sources drying up. By day bankers live in large, glass buildings surrounded by lights and concrete; at night they live in much smaller but even more luxurious compounds with running water and garden surroundings. Their primary food source is money - mostly dollars and pounds, depending upon which part of the continent they live, but they are sometimes found to be grazing on rupees, bahts and the ever more popular, euros.

If you want to help the bankers, please give generously at The Piggy Bankers Support Fund (under "P" in Yellow Pages).
