Par-tay Friday: Vote for your favorite Econ Haiku

How many times have you read an Econ Haiku and said to yourself, “Any idiot could do a better job than that!” Smart readers, too. So hit me with your best shot in the comments portion today. In the meantime, vote for your favorite of the week.

What’s your favorite haiku?(polls)

The Contenders:

Monday:

Misusing TARP funds.

I’m shocked, shocked to find gambling

going on with banks!

Tuesday:

It seems in the bag

Special interest cash to keep

Plastic free from fees

Wednesday:

Starbucks brews profits

Of course shareholders will say

Make it a venti

Thursday:

Housing sales are up.

Does that mean recovery?

That’s a lot to buy

Friday:

Tho’ business is flat

Omaha’s Oracle says

Smart money’s in stocks
