You must be joking . . .

I need a laugh. Seriously.
So, I scoured the Internet for the best one-liners about the financial crisis. Here are my top five picks for the week:

  • 5. I went to buy a toaster, and it came with a bank.
  • 4. Money talks. Trouble is, mine only knows one word: Goodbye.
  • 3. How do you define optimism? A banker who irons five shirts on Sunday.
  • 2. What's the capital of Iceland? Answer: $3.50.

And the No. 1 financial crisis joke of the week is . . .

Q: What is the one thing Wall Street and the Olympics have in common?
A: Synchronized diving!
