    The man in the cartoon must be watching CNBC.

    If the cartoonist watched CNBC, the caption would more likely say "Stocks rose sharply today on predictions of speculation of rumors that under-performing fund managers would chase stocks into year-end."

    Chris --

     

    This one could have gone in your separating truth from facts column equally as well.

     

    Traders these days can't very well call themselves, or even think of themselves, as Big Swinging D___s. Today they remind me of the girls in my high school cafeteria and how they reacted when I snuck a mouse in and let it go on the floor. Nothing happened for about 45 seconds, then it was instant bedlam: A group of about 30 guys all trying to catch the terrified mouse and all the girls in the place (probably 350 or so-- about 700 kids total) all screaming, jumping up on the cafeteria tables or running for the doors. Hmmm. Maybe those girls grew up to be our traders now . . . .

     

    (By the way, the $1.00 that I spent for that mouse had by far and away the greatest return of any investment I have ever made: To this day I think about the cafeteria suddenly just exploding --it was just amazing how quickly the word spread across a really big room-- and I crack up.)
