The Faces of Wall Street

The economy is in turmoil! The financial system is crumbling! Capitalism is doomed!

That's true. But, alas, I am an optimist. I like to search for a silver lining, no matter how dark and ominous the cloud. So, over the last couple of weeks, nothing has amused me quite like looking at the ever-horrored faces of Wall Street traders. Call me cruel, but taking delight in the self-created misery of others is one of my favorite past times!

Here are some of my favorites. If these don't cheer you up, I don't know what will.

"I'm thinking I might take that new chick from Logistics. If things go well I might be showing her my O-face. Oh... Oh... Oh! You know what I'm talkin' about. Oh!"

What is his mother going to say? She loved that full head of hair.

Guys, guys. This isn't golf. Lower numbers are BAD.

Poor Christopher.

We only wish you (all) had before you screwed up this badly.

I think this unfortunate fellow just found his daughter on a porn website.

Hand over the mouth is pretty standard. But, look at the guy way in the back. What the hell is going on with his tie?

I...have no idea.

That guy belongs in movies. Such a great conveyance of emotion.

You'd think there was another 9/11.

Gosh...where have I seen that photo before? Oh, right!

See? It could be worse. Keep that in mind.
