From feeling French to Bing for bling — the Econ Haiku poll

Because that GDP price deflator doesn’t have to deflate your weekend, join the fun and vote for your favorite Econ Haiku of this (holiday shortened week). Or write your own in the comments section.

What’s your favorite haiku?(online polls)

The contenders:

Tuesday

A four-day work week

A pit stop in the rat race

One almost feels French

Wednesday

A license to kill

Issued when the name is bond

Ask the General

Thursday

Nordy’s rating cut

Becky should have bought those shoes

So says Credit Suisse

Friday

This Bing ain’t Crosby

Still, the bigs at Microsoft

Hope that it will sing
