TLP: Timing is Everything

"SHITSHITSHIT! Keep running! Keep running! Runnnnn!"


In the midst of his battle with the titans of Wall Street, President Barack Obama was nearly upstaged by a rodent. Obama had just begun a Rose Garden statement lauding the end of a Senate filibuster on his financial overhaul when some kind of rodent dashed out of the bushes to his right, just outside the Oval Office.

As photographers snapped away in the sun-drenched garden, the critter scurried straight past the gray podium with the presidential seal and made a bee-line for another set of bushes to Obama's left.
It had to be a rodent. Couldn't have been a baby bluebird, you know, or a cute Rose Garden bunny. Maybe something cuddly would have prompted Obama to answer a few press questions.

The Lazy Paperboy

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

The ancients would have called this an ominous portent or omen.

Maybe we can go back to reading entrails of offered sacrifices ourselves. It would really liven up CNBC, and be about as accurate.

Now whaddya think of Gold/Silver? I mean the hard stuff.


Are you asking me or the Paperboy? Because as far as I am aware, TLP does not partake in shiny metals.

I'm lucky if I get "shiny metals" as a tip ... lazy motherfucker that I am ;)
