From Mickey D’s to Kenny the banker — vote for your favorite haiku

Just because the official government statistics may understate unemployment, it doesn’t mean we can’t have some overstated fun…or try to. Vote for your favorite Econ Haiku of the week. And write your own in the comments field.

What’s your favorite haiku?(polls)

The contenders:

Monday:

Mickey D’s sales soar

With McCafe espressos

No jolt on Wall Street

Tuesday:

AT&T’s chief

Will become GM chairman

Phones, cars, whatever

Wednesday:

Let’s hope that Fiat’s

“Fix It Again, Tony” days

Are past. Chrysler does.

Thursday:

Grilled Lewis for lunch

But the recipe won’t change

You can bank on it

Friday:

Big Tobacco lost

Its clout. Insurers and banks

Are still smokin’ hot
