"'Kay, so the whole deal with Arthur returning during Britain's greatest hour of need got me thinking, like, what if Arthur comes back now? And he's all like, "We're a parliamebabble constitu-what?" and like, "GTFO, Gordon Brown." And he looks at the London stock exchange and is like, "WTF is this shit?" but he makes it better somehow, 'cos these are the terms of his return. 'Cos maybe by "greatest hour of need", they meant "global economic recession and financial crisis".
Arthur Pendragon, only you can restructure the financial sector!" ~ lassiterfics
It amuses me more than it should that we're looking at maybe three or four inches and are like, "Eh, that's nothing," while meanwhile down in DC you guys are getting a foot of snow and people in charge are, like, swooning onto fainting couches all, "OMG WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE OF SNOWFLAKES YOU GUYS." Dollars to donuts says the entire Obama family can't stop giggling at everybody today and everybody who's been in DC forever is like, "IT'S NOT FUNNY, YOU GUYS. THE SKY GNOMES ARE ATTACKING US WITH ICE SHAVINGS. WHERE IS YOUR FEAR?!" ~ apocalypsos
"I was just reading about the third bailout of Citigroup and thought of a much better plan.
We the people lend them money at a *Low Introductory Rate of only 5.99% APR (for the first month, after which the rate will be prime plus 24.99% compounded daily).
The CEO will be called every evening at the dinner hour on his private cell phone, and be placed on at least five mailing lists to receive fabulous free offers.
Late payments will result in fees and increases in interest rates.
*subject to totally random and unreasonable terms and conditions" ~ lurkitty
