British Bankers Mock People Harmed by Credit Crunch

It's not enough that they caused the crisis, now British bankers are mocking their victims.

In an article in the Sunday issue of the London Express, a group of idiot bankers calling themselves the City Boyz (note the 'Z,' to make them more cool and hip) released a video on YouTube laughing about the misery the banks have caused their fellow Britons.



The chorus includes the lovely line, "Sorry we f---ed up your Christmas, but really we don’t give a s---.”

City Boyz spokesman Dave -- probably the one most able to form complete sentences -- told the Express, "We were down O'Neills, pissed (drunk) as usual and pissed off that we were getting the blame for the crunch all the bloody time. Then we all thought you know what, we don’t really give a s--t. We’ve all done OK, sod ’em."

So, not knowing anything else about British investment bankers, I have learned the following:

  1. They're often drunk, as shown by the "as usual" statement.
  2. They made plenty of money, but don't accept any blame for the British financial collapse.
  3. They don't care about the plight of others, but rather choose to mock the people they've harmed.
  4. They have learned nothing from the French Revolution.

The paper identifies the morons as Ciarran “The Brawler”, Dave, Jeremy and Marcus. The gutless cowards did not want to reveal their employers, although they have admitted they are City bankers and stock brokers. One claims to work for Lehman brothers, the collapsed investment banker.

If there is any justice in England, their employers will figure out who the asshats in the video are, fire them, and rescind their salaries and bonuses. Then, when they're on the dole (in the unemployment line), someone will come out with their own video, mocking the plight of insensitive louts who finally get what they deserve.

Not that I'm bitter or anything.

  1. Thanks for this. I was looking for a good British tale, having tired of the whole "Christmas Carol" thing.

AYFKMWTS?! FBI Creates 88 Page Twitter Slang Guide

TFBIHCAEEPTSD.

Did you get that? It's an acronym. Web slang. It's how all the teens and young people are texting with their tweeters and Facer-books on their cellular doodads.

It stands for "The FBI has created an eighty-eight page Twitter slang dictionary."

See, you would have known that if you had the FBI's 88 page Twitter slang dictionary.

Eighty-eight pages! Of slang! AYFKMWTS?! (Are you f***ing kidding me with this s***?! That's actually how they spell it in the guide, asterisks and everything. You know, in case the gun-toting agents who catch mobsters and international terrorists get offended by salty language.)

I didn't even know there were 88 Twitter acronyms, let alone enough acronyms to fill 88 pieces of paper.

The FBI needs to be good at Twitter because they're reading everyone's tweets to see if anyone is planning any illegal activities. Because that's what terrorists do — plan their terroristic activities publicly, as if they were…

Understanding 7 Different Types of Humor

One of my pet peeves is when people say they have a "dry" sense of humor, without actually understanding what it actually means.

"Dry" humor is not just any old type of humor. It's not violent, not off-color, not macabre or dark.

Basically, dry humor is that deadpan style of humor. It's the not-very-funny joke your uncle the cost analysis accountant tells. It's Bob Newhart, Steven Wright, or Jason Bateman in Arrested Development.

It is not, for the love of GOD, people, the Black Knight scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I swear, if anyone says Monty Python is "dry humor" is going to get a smack.

Here are some other types of comedy you may have heard and are just tossing around, willy-nilly.

Farce: Exaggerated comedy. Characters in a farce get themselves in an unlikely or improbable situation that takes a lot of footwork and fast talking to get out of. The play "The Foreigner" is an example of a farce, as are many of the Jeeves &…

What Are They Thinking? The Beloit College Mindset List

Every year at this time, the staff at Beloit College send out their new student Mindset List as a way to make everyone clutch their chest and feel the cold hand of death.

This list was originally created and shared with their faculty each year, so the faculty would understand what some of their own cultural touchstones might mean, or not mean, to the incoming freshmen. They also wanted the freshmen to know it was not cool to refer to '80s music as "Oldies."

This year's incoming Beloit freshmen are typically 18 years old, born in 1999. John F. Kennedy Jr. died that year, as did Stanley Kubrick and Gene Siskel. And so did my hope for a society that sought artistic and intellectual pursuits for the betterment of all humanity. Although it may have actually died when I heard about this year's Emoji Movie.

Before I throw my hands up in despair, here are a few items from the Mindset list for the class of 2021.

They're the last class to be born in the 1900s, and are t…
