    Am I crazy or is Dylan Ratigan drunk right now on Fast Money?

    John Clarke moved to Australia from New Zealand because he gained WAY more material to work with when he did.

    Similar the “It’s Credit and it’s Crunchy” This skit by the Long Longs is practically clairvoyant. They mention Bear Sterns by name and foretell the recent Fed moves. It’s tragic as it is funny.

    What a delightful diversion these videos. I love British humor (makes up for the food!)
