Saturday Humor: What Happens When Batman Shows Up On An Earnings Call

Tyler Durden's picture


What is the only thing better than a possible Einhorn (impersonator) sighting at a Herbalife conference call? Why Bruce Wayne from Wayne Enterprises, exhausted from recent skirmishes with Bane and the Joker, asking the CEO of Archer Ltd if he can invest in "some technology he is developing." We can only hope Batman were to show up on an earnings call of one of the companies, all of them financial of course, that truly need his attention.

All of the below really happened, and can be heard at 35'50" into the Archer Ltd. Q1 conference call.

This government needs the ability to track and monitor it's citizens. Obamaphones provide that ability when a citizen can't afford to pay for his or her own tracking device.

Lloyd Blankfeind, CEO of Goldman Smucks:

Hello, Joker.  We can hear you.

Joker: Hi there.  This is the Joker.  I was wondering given your trading technology, whether you could let me run the algos on your trading desk during the next Obama TV appearance.

Lloyd Blankfeind, CEO of Goldman Smucks:

I think you will fidn that we run the algos just fine during Obama TV appearances.

Joker: No, you do not understand.  What I want to do is not run the algos just fine during Obama' speech.  You see, ever since Batman resurfaced with his Archer Ltd. partnership, I need to strengthen my strategic alliances among organizations who I would expect could be sympathetic to my cause.  I have picked Goldman Smucks as my first partner.  Also, you have to realize that you guys owe me a favor after I lost all that money on all of those shitty Stolper recommendationa.

First of all.... Bruce Wayne and his sidekick "robin" were never really comfortable with being out n about sans costume...

that tells you all you need to know about that [un-dynamic] duo... which more or less relied upon a connection with the obviously corrupt police commisioner in order to activate what was pretty much a private vendetta thing against free enterprisin competitors who hadn't paid off downtown...

this whole crony capitalist conspiracy woulda bin blown wide open by the real deal duo long ago...

Steve Roper(muck-rakin journo) and Mike Nomad(gear jammer...muscle... badguy gadfly)were the cause celebre of the Sunday Comix for a generation now busy with dyin off... but back in the (pre Scorese)day everything you needed to know about the wider world could be found in an installement of the pipe-smoker and his brushcut buddy...

and before the gender-bending pharaseutical conglomerates  spewed out their atrazine and agent orange style chemical cocktails into our air\water\soils  and their complicit media co-conspirators conducted their paralllel culture war campaigns to poison minds as well as bodies...

those two dudes ran the voodoo down and had enuff time to get tight wit da ladies too! nO costumes... nO rubbers.. nO problem.... they knocked down the villains and knocked up the fillies... no metrOsexuals... no phOny fiat...

it was the best of times... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAK5xLBEcqs

I love that the jackass running the call tries to act as if he didn't just see a tomato go whizzing past his head.  <lmao>

I wonder if the next caller was going to ask why Charlene left him?

(google "jason donovan neighbours" if you're at a loss)
