All I want for Christmas is Debt Bro...

Thanks Banzai.

Fucker cracks me up every time.

Running an economy on fiat currency,
Is like charging a river an ongoing current fee,
Will anyone realize it is all a mistake,
Before the dam on the water breaks?

Happy Holidays from your favorite skeptical philosopher

Merry Cliffmas everybody!

Seriously Dr. Banzai, I don't know how you come up with this great stuff.

Very nice fusion of the classical holiday theme with the classical political ballet.

I picture all these clowns stumbling over each other and falling off the stage at some point.

But, I'll leave you to do the artist's rendition of these things - I never progressed past stick art. ;)


Happy Holidays!

I'm thinking Putin would appreciate your art WB, the others not so much yet I hope they see it.  Is there a wikepedia page for the Debt Brother yet.

Someone did manage to get my Debt Brother Voyager message on Wikipedia for about 12 hours.

I'm having a weird experience of deja vu . . . are these images from last year?  They're great and I love tradition sometimes . . . it's that time of year. 

Thanks for the push . . . I'm off the interwebz to watch the ballet, Barishnakov and Kirkland (best ever).

Merry Christmas, man!

The Boehner cracker is new. And the Fiat Fairy is improved. And they all have been rolled out in the spirit of the season. :-)

I like the Keiser Report. Mostly for his guests. The same with Alex Jones. Both of them are a bit too much to take on their own but their interviews with their guests makes it well worth the watch.

these are great!

Hey Banzai, any chance you could photoshop Bernank, Turbo Tim, etc. into this?

Priceless! As the parent of a young ballerina for 16 years, I was a stage crew parent for *many* productions of Nutcracker. Sigh.

You missed a chance to work our departing Secretary of State into the action, perhaps as the Sugar Plum Fairy?

Mouse king, aka Rat King (Different productions bill him differently) was my favorite as well.

Dance of the Douche Bags had me giggling a while.

The one with Alan Greedspan, is that child pronography? What are they doing under the pope's robes anyway? Dear God!

williambanzai7's picture

I believe if you watch it on PBS along with the pictures, it will all make good sense. ;-)

Until the bubble bursts, what goes on under Greedspan's robes stay under Greedspan's robes.

Bubble burst, pre- or post-,

not for long.

fantastic - fiat fairy is absolutely priceless!

If Tyler keyed the title, he changed Tchaikovsky from being Russian to being Polish (Tchaikovski).

Fiat Fairy!!!  Mouse King!!! Devastating!! LOL!!

Yen Cross's picture

I can't stop laughing over those giant ears on Geithner...

He's not a mouse, he's the rat king.

Yep, the little douche bag rat, (mouse), that roared!

 Now I'm laughing even harder!  The biggest gifts come in the smallest packages.   Billy-7 kicks ass, and transcends every( color/ gender/religion)

geez, Greenspan, the nightmare before Christmas

WhiteNight123129's picture

Nutcracker is very much Christmas like, the type of show you go to see at the Opera. Cendrillon from Prokofiev would be very much appropriated. SPecially the Waltz-Coda midnight scene!!! That is your fiscal cliff with all the tension building knowing that Cendrillon is very close to the deadline...

A lot more Creepy that nutcrackers music...





williambanzai7's picture

Just like American Santa Claus, the Nutcracker is a story that is presented much darker in its European.

Thnks for the music ;-)

Great work William.

I suggest you use "Adigio for Strings" (Theme from the movie Platoon" for your next great work!

The midwest storm really blew yesterday, nice and sunny today out in the hinderland!

Mery Christmas, looking forward to more of your great work in the next year, as their should be plenty more to work from.

williambanzai7's picture

Don't worry, I have every ZH day planned out through Christmas and then some ;-)

Stay warm and safe and Merry Christmas to you and all the rest of ZH!

To you too, WB. Thanks for the quality entertainment. Your work is invaluable to these times.

just an average day on the set of the Keiser Report

NotApplicable's picture

I realize that he promotes your artwork on his show, but Max is STILL a duplicitous tool (or a useful idiot who doesn't know better?). You'd be better served to avoid him, lest he utilize your work in promotion of his own flavor of the evil in his personal campaign to divide and conquer.

Well... unless, that is... I missed the part where he started addressing Tom Woods in an adult manner, rather than his "defense" of character assassination he used due to his inability to address the actual subject matter.

Until that day comes, I'll not let a single Keiser reference on this site that I see go without this reminder, as the "man" deserves ZERO respect.

williambanzai7's picture

I don't have to agree with everything Max thinks nor do I have to agree with everything that gets posted here.

What is important to me is Max and Stacy are totally in alignment with my views on the scum running the "Street." They actually instigate me many times to push my approach even closer to the edge, which to me is infinitately better than having someone say tone it down.

What is also important to me is that neither Max nor Tyler put any editorial conditions on my posts. I have declined other avenues of broad media dissemination because this condition would not be met.

I love Max's motto: if you see me in your town, it means you are fucked. He is currently in London where his motto applies in spades.

diogeneslaertius's picture

you arean uncompromising firebrand artist

and i would follow you into the gates of hell itself on basis of that integrity alone

When ratings are based on what any media outlet "deserves", then payment in dollars will no longer be an acceptable means of exchange. Society deserves the Facebook IPO.. Facebook deserves to be paid in dollars. It's a partnership version of the hot potato game. Bloomberg says it best... There's no alternative.

diogeneslaertius's picture

the woods dust up is healthy for ourcommunity as a whole and asign that we have become self aware


we are no longer reacting to benrnake puts - we are internalizing the debate and two of our most important, disparate camps thus come to terms (however much friction)


he's just being max - tom is a good guy and his heart is big enough to take it - plus it was a great opportunity for him to showcase his eloquence ;)

NotApplicable's picture

Well, it will be healthy once the level of awareness has been raised to the point where people would feel like absolute fools for promoting ANYTHING about Keiser.

Honestly, how can anyone look at the exchanges between MK and TW without feeling disgust at how Max is relying upon childish ad-hominem attacks, while COMPLETELY REFUSING TO ADDRESS ANY ISSUE Tom RAISED? Seriously? Yet WB and Tyler both still promote him.

I was as big of a Max fan as the next person, as I absolutely appreciated his expose on JPM's blatant criminality. Then he went full-retard on AE, and afterwards, Tom Woods who made a rebuttal of Max's ignorance/lies.

Which leaves me very confused. Is Max a Wall St. genius, dumber than a post, or a disingenuous tool?

I consider Tom Woods to be one of the finest minds living at this time. My guess is that Keiser feels the same way, otherwise he should have all sorts of real rebuttals to make against him, rather than the ZERO rebuttals offered thus far.

Instead he does nothing but continue to lie and slander, all in an effort to boost his ego. In other words, he's become a worthless punk just like any other talking head on the TeeVee.

Like I've said before, if no one else will call him out because he's "on our team," well, I will. Because otherwise, it destroys the integrity of everything it is mingled with.

diogeneslaertius's picture

i dont disagree with you and i gnashed my teeth at how harsh max was with the eminent dr. woods (a nice guy and Champion of the 10th)

but the argument, however insubstantial, i think should be greeted as asign that our immunological response capability as a culture is robust

it is a clear sign that we are no longer merely reacting to bernank puts etc. and are internalizing this ideological struggle over hayek/mises etc., giving birth to a new economic renaissance - as two of the most disparate camps in Our Movement struggle to Come To Terms

hopefully people around max will encourage him to be more fair with tom, but its max! i mean cmon ^_^ its like asking alex jones not to be a texas hill billy.

in the end max ends up being a bit of a carnival barker here as well, bringing more people into an increasingly Big Tent

your arguments are not lost on me sir, i assure you; nor is the sentiment thereof.

Her dance on my face comes to mind. (Is that going to far?)


Merry holidays Mr. Banzai, whoever you are.
