When it moves to FACEPALM status then you should worry.

The one on MSNBC's frontpage is an Aisan man looking up to the sky with his mouth wide open. It looks like he's looking up at the red bar of death they're running across the top of the page, telling us how much the dow has dropped this morning already.

I don't know which is worse.

On AOL it's a chick with both hands on the forehead.

I'm hoping that there are some photographers standing around outside of Wall Street buildings waiting to get good action shots of people jumping.

What? Too cruel?

Last night on Colbert's show, he gave them a whole spread of new photos to choose from.. it was hysterical.

The sound you hear right now is me puking!
I just lost about 25-30% of my money in the course of a week!
It IS all pretty hilarious though!
They had a montage of distraught traders on BNN and there's a whole website of it.
HA! Losers!

CNN did a whole segment on how Wall Street guys have to watch out for paparazzi or they will be on the cover of something if they touch their head.

You might be amused by one or two of the pics here.

i thought of you this morning when i saw our local rag with a picture of a stock market dude with his hand on his chin.

Sadly those that have billions learned from their predecessors in the '30's and have their butts covered. They will come out of this not feeling any pain, these are the traders that are trying to make money, just like any other average Joe, or slightly above average.

I think the bank CEO that ran the bank into bankruptcy, should have to give back all of his million dollar bonuses and half of his millions of dollars salary for his tenure. He obviously didn't earn any of it. You can bet he isn't suffering.

Same thing for those bigwigs that run the trading houses. They are responsible, but are going to walk away without even a slap on the wrist.

The economy is looking very gloomy right now.

It doesn't look like the bailout is doing too much.

I saw a photo of a guy with his face in his hands on Yahoo! news and laughed my ass off. (Not laughing at the economic troubles or at the man in despair, but that you were so right. The media are soooo unimaginative.)

No bullshitting here. You're right on.

Luckily, I didn't really know what was in my IRA anyway...because it has diminished substantially. Retirement? What's that?? (Still waiting to have THAT discussion with dh)

And what Reb said?
DITTO

I see a different face every morning when I open up Yahoo. Poor guys!

I keep telling myself things will pick up.

LOL. I am going to have to check it out from now on.
