…and they all fall down!

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.

  1. Hi ,

    I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don’t you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Journeys and Journals’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

    BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run http://www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

    This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. 🙂
