No time this week for an update from The Wicked Witch. This is better, anyway!

I found this today when it was posted to ZeroHedge. It's fantastic. I don't think that the creator is MrSilverGoldSilver but I don't know. Frankly, it doesn't matter. This producer has taken the "art" to a whole, new level by including caricatures of Warren Buffett and The Bernank and then letting them "speak" their own words. It's funny, educational and accurate...and it deserves wide distribution.

Enjoy!

The parrot and the magician - - -

A magician was working on a cruise ship. Since the audience was different each week, the magician did the same tricks over and over again.

There was only one problem: The captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick.

Once he understood, he started shouting in the middle of the show, "Look, it's not the same hat!" or, "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table!" Or, "Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?"

The magician was furious but couldn't do anything. It was, after all, the Captain's' parrot.

Then one stormy night on the Pacific, the ship unfortunately sank, drowning almost all who were on board. The magician luckily found himself on a piece of wood floating in the middle of the sea, as fate would have it, with the parrot.

They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word.

This went on for a day... then two days, and then three days. Finally, on the fourth day, the parrot could not hold back any longer and said...

"OK, I give up. Where's the bloody ship?"

Don't Blame These Guys

Don't blame us, we are just following Ben Bernanke's orders.

Anyway, we just make the stuff fiat is printed on...
