Q. How do you know your bank is in trouble? A. When its share price is less than the cost of taking money out of one of its ATMs.
The blog is indebted to Thomas Friedman for this gem.
Thanks also to a blog reader for these 2 jokes from the Jay Leno show:
'The US has made a new weapon that destroys people but keeps the building standing. It's called the stock market.'
'I want to warn people from Nigeria who might be watching our show. If you get any emails from Washington asking for money, it's a scam. Don't fall for it.'
Newer readers of the blog may also like to refer back to an earlier joke page, linked to the Financial Times' collection of sub-prime jokes,
