The recent spur in declarations of US Finance majors like Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch has worsened the bourses across the globe. Probably this is not a great time to do MBA but we took a chill pill and joked about it..here are the ones we cooked up…for MBAs and otherwise
A Finance MBA graduate for a job interview was asked about his summer job. He replied ‘Sir, I did my internship in the i-banking division of Merry Lynched…sorry to say but that company’s a part of history books!
Dude! Lets buy a brand…i wanna buy Lehman brand, I have the cash right here. Know what! I would start a restaurant with that name afterall this brand has recieved a lot of publicity last week. The menu would offer Freddie MacBurger, Merrill Fries and a bottle of Lehman 0 calories drink for free.
There were days when i-banks like Lehman and Merrill looked to buy…and now are the days they look for buyers!
Nobody wants to marry an i-banker now! Their firms are bust and their credit ratings are dust. Oops S&P ratings can be defective!
Though times are ahead…lets just wait and watch.
