AND NOW FOR A MESSAGE TO THE BUNDESBANK FROM BENDITO BEN
.

 

Bendito is spilling the beans
The Bundesbank knows what this means
Their gold is all gone
A Central Bank con
Akin to their printing machines

The Limerick King

 

Charles Ponzi in Gold Vault
.

Ponzi can surely attest
The gold in the vault is the best
But then he checked leases
For 10 times the pieces
And said: "Now I'm really impressed!!!"

The Limerick King


 

PONZI EVENT HORIZON

.

When the Demon had finished his crime
And the assets could no longer climb
His power decayed
He started to fade
Like dust in the space-winds of time

The Limerick King

And hat was the reason again for not wanting to audit the gold?

Of the three, I would think the Ponzi in the Gold vault has to be disquieting to certain powerful people. The truth hurts.

I also like the three as a set because the message is nice and tight, the topic is right on the money (pun intended) and the limericks sew it together beautifully

Moreover, the three images exemplify Visual Combat: the first subverts Hollywood, the second subverts history and the third is just imagination.

I didn't even think about your first point about Ponzi, but you're absolutely right. Talk about potent juxtaposition!

For me, I interpret the third one as the natural way of things. Control is only limited and possible for short periods of time. Those who dream of omnipotence are always let down in the end.

Neat and poetics leap within me:

You've heard of that land called Peru,

Which was robbed of its gold (as you knew).

But it all got spent, by people so bent,

That nothing was left to be lent.

Which just shows that nothing is new.

(Attributed to Golda Bankman, the whistle-blowers poet)

"In 2011, when the debt limit was increased by $2.1 trillion in return for $2.1 trillion in spending cuts over ten years." see above.

So, THEY promised us $210 billion spending cuts in 2012 and 013.  Anyone seen that?

Response: AGUY, While there are no budget cuts for 2013, you'll be happy to know that Washington did take action. They have chosen to raise your taxes for 2013. while this will not decrease the Budget deficit it will avoid the deficit from getting larger as out lays for Social Security,Medicare and Wealthfare. are rising. You should also be happy that your health insurance premiums will be increasing by about 20% in 2013 and another 40% by 2016 for ACA (O'bamacare).

Didn't recognize Benny boy at first, what with the hair and all ... even with the Bendito hat! I bet he could walk around Washington in a toupee and nobody would even recognize him.

The Event Horizon piece is awesome, one of the best yet. I bet there aren't many limericks with the line "Like dust in the space-winds of time."  :-) 

The Limerick King's picture

I think I wrote that line shortly after slipping on milk that the kids and spilled, and banging my head against the fridge. I refer to this as artistic license below...  ;-)

Excellent, judging by the hands it appears the former Fed-Fuck is no stranger to the concept of ass-fisting the populace.

WB + Limerick King = great fun to read!

 

Thank you.

Yeah, the combination of the two really works.

Remember this old ad:

"Hey, you got peanut butter on my chocolate!  No, you got chocolate on my peanut butter!  Mmmmmm..... this is really good!"  (old Reese's Peanut Butter Cup ad, if I recall correctly)

Yeah, like that.

Perhaps some "Gold Deliverance", "squeal like a pig" material might be fitting...

You tryin' to provoke me Banzai!?

Guns at high noon for a shoot-out disputing that Krugman has anything to do with Keynes.

Yep and we could exchange fire about the truly weird fact that Libertarians just lurv Ayn Rand ... from the nominally anti-statist Ron Paul (who's had a nice little earner in Congress) to Alan Greenspan who believes in state planning of economies, via financial instruments of mass destruction.

There's nerd by the name of Paul Krugman,

Who lives in space most inhuman.

So he spouts what he does,

Without thought or fuss,

'Cos he's never done anthing usefully human.

(Attr. A Non, the unknown poet)

williambanzai7's picture

By now you know where I am coming from. In the world we live in there is no such thing as adherence to principles when it comes to politicians and wonks.

BTW, I read that an anti-biotic resistant strain of Krugman is spreading around the world...

Like, like woooooaaaaaa LK...

Maybe I should hit the bong before reading the limericks.

I have to admit to using a little more artistic licence with that particular line...  ;-)

and why would they want to double and triple count their gold, the Midas touch and leverage the ancient relic anyway?. our King Midas has the paper touch, everything turns to FIAT! worthless paper! including the etf for gold.

lakecity55's picture

The oldest Bauer trick in the book.

sdmjake's picture

Yes, Similiar to what we call the Sadim touch (Midas backwards) where everything you touch turns to sh*t.

old naughty's picture

wait...if you go forward... then you turn sh*t into gold ?

sori, couldn't resist.

I have something I'm finishing now, but it has gone long and I'm not sure the ZH ADHD crowd will even tolerate it. However, Mrs Cog is on me daily to just post it and move on to the next piece.
