Jap banks in trouble too
It just gets worse.
Uncertainty has now hit the Japanese banking sector:
In the last 7 days Origami Bank has folded.
Sumo Bank has gone belly up.
Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some branches.
Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song,
while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.
Samurai Bank has had to cut its staff in half.
Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black.
Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop,
and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank
where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal!

Bunk over at Tacky Raccoons posted this great Steve Goodman track
I enjoyed it so much that Iam sharing it with you.
Steve Goodman passed away in 1984 from leaukemia
You never even called me by my name
For those of you who enjoyed the Leningrad Cowboys,
here is a link to another of their cover versions of popular hits
The Law of the Garbage Truck

I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car
jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches!
The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.
My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy.
And I mean, he was really friendly.
So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that?
This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!’
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call,
‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks.
They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it
and sometimes they’ll dump it on you.
Don’t take it personally.
Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on.
Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so.....
‘Love the people who treat you right.
Pray for the ones who don‘t.’

A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with
four young Mothers and their small children.
"You all have obsessions," he observed.
To the first mother, Mary, he said, "You are obsessed with eating.
You have even named your daughter 'Candy'
."He turned to the second Mom, Ann.
"Your obsession is with money.
Again, it manifests itself in your child's name, 'Penny'.
"He turned to the third Mom, Joyce.
"Your obsession is with alcohol.
This shows, too, in your child's name, 'Brandy'."
At this point, the fourth Mother, Kathy, quietly got up,
took her little boy by the hand and whispered,
"Come on, Dick. This guy has no idea what he's talking about.
Let's go pick up Peter and Willy from school and get dinner."


Uh Oh!

Desert Islands
On a chain of beautiful deserted islands in the middle of nowhere,
the following people are stranded:
Two Italian men and one Italian woman
Two French men and one French woman
Two German men and one German woman
Two Greek men and one Greek woman
Two English men and one English woman
Two Bulgarian men and one Bulgarian woman
Two Japanese men and one Japanese woman
Two Chinese men and one Chinese woman
Two Irish men and one Irish woman
Two American men and one American woman
One month later, on these absolutely stunning deserted islands in the middle of nowhere,
the following things have occurred:
One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman.
The two French men and the French woman are living happily together in a menage a trois.
The two German men have a strict weekly schedule of alternating visits
with the German woman.
The two Greek men are sleeping with each other
and the Greek woman is cleaning and cooking for them.
The two English men are waiting for someone to introduce them to the English woman.
The two Bulgarian men took one look at the Bulgarian woman
and started swimming to another island.
The two Japanese have faxed Tokyo and are awaiting instructions.
The two Chinese men have set up a pharmacy/liquor store/restaurant/laundry
and have gotten the woman pregnant in order to supply employees for their store.
The two Irish men divided the island into North and South and set up a distillery.
They do not remember if sex is in the picture because
it gets somewhat foggy after a few liters of coconut whiskey.
However, they're satisfied because the English aren't having any fun.
The two American men are contemplating suicide,
because the American woman will not shut up and complains relentlessly about her body,
the true nature of feminism,
what the sun is doing to her skin,
how she can do anything they can do,
the necessity of fulfillment,
the equal division of household chores,
how sand and palm trees make her look fat,
how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her nicer than they do,
and how her relationship with her mother is the root cause of all her problems,
and why didn't they bring a cell phone so they could call 111
and get them all rescued off this forsaken deserted island in the middle of nowhere
so she can get her nails done and go shopping................................


Yes, it is
