Filing Chapter 11 Before Being Potty-Trained

I just saw this video on Facebook, and, in light of yesterday's stock-market-down-the-rabbit-hole adventure, it seems timely to share it in the blogoshpere.




  1. The Serta Perfect Sleeper savings plan doesn't look so bad now.

  2. SN1 put this up on G+ yesterday. My comment: at least he's young enough to start over, unlike SOME of us.

    I haven't had the heart to look at my 401(k) all this week.

  3. You may be on to something, PH!

    I hear your pain, Buck. I haven't either, but Pepper has been playing with it and diversifying, so I think I won't panic -- yet.

  4. Heh! I actually made a bunch of money with E-trade several years ago. I bought stock in something called...well...I can't remember what it was called, but it was an online grocery store that delivered in the San Francisco & L.A. area.

    Webvan...that was it, "Webvan." It went from something like 40 cents per share to roughly two bucks. I sold. I followed it for a while, and when it went back down to about 50 cents I bought whole hog (pun intended in reference to that stupid clock picture below).

    It tanked. I'm pretty sure I lost more than I had made in the Webvan run-up. Sickening part of it is that I had to pay taxes on the profit from the first sale. Got double-whammied!

    Tax laws suck! Even more than red pigs.

  5. I think my husband felt this way when he checked his stocks the other day.

  6. You're right about tha tax law thing, Andy, but you're mistaken abouyt red pigs -- they don't suck, they snort. Rather majestically, I might add.

    I haven't checked on the sticks, Lou.
