Блумберговские колумнисты развлекаются (via veroniq).

Hedge-Fund Guy enters an investment bank. “I wish to complain about this derivative security what I purchased not two years ago from this very boutique,'” he says.

“Ah yes, the Collateralized-Debt Obligation,”' says the Wall Street Banker. “What's wrong with him?'”

“I'll tell you what's wrong with him, my lad. He's dead, that's what's wrong with him!”

Wall Street Banker: “No, no, he's… restin'.”

Hedge-Fund Guy: “Look, matey, I know a dead derivative when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.”

“No, no, he's not dead, he's restin'! Remarkable investment, the CDO, isn't it? Beautiful plumage!”

Ну, что будет дальше, все уже поняли.
