We’re Suspending Snarky Post Titles until the Economy Improves

September 25, 2008

Frederick and I occasionally speak outside the confines of this blog, and earlier today he warned me that a wave of obvious “I’m suspending x” humor was on its way. Once again, he was leaning correctly:

we need to suspend the Red Sox. Years ago, long before headlines like “Red Sox clinch playoff spot, Yankees eliminated” were even imaginable, we never had this kind of problem. We should suspend Tampa Bay as well. We’re not sure why but it just seems like the thing to do. Something about Florida real estate.

For me, the best part of reading this article was learning that finance folk are referring to the Hank Paulson-Ben Bernanke duo by the nickname “hanky-panky”.
