Clown Banker – Redux

This is actually something I did a while ago. But, with last week’s meltdown on Wall Street I thought it was a perfect time to bring it back. Not only that, but I whipped up a t-shirt version. So, if you want to let people know what you think about the bail-out, pick up the [...]
