Indeed, that was deeply cerebral humor.

Massive phail....

It's Estragon not estrogen.

It's the name of one of the two principle characters of waiting for Godot and also the French name for Tarragon.

Voices in unison above - like all across Europe:

« CAN'T the ECB just KEEP LENDING to EU banks


Brilliant cartoon!

Bravo Michael Cembalest and ZeroHedge

Boxing movies aren't just well-liked by fans, however with experts too. There pacquiao vs bradley has been a minimum of six boxing movies up to now which have introduced in additional than twenty Oscar nominations. It's vocational training with valid reason these movies understand this type of attention, they're memorable, fun to look at, and frequently have gripping story lines.

Even HFT robots need some rest. When they feel tired, Zerohedge is their preferred location where they typically engage in spamming comments section with unrelated mix of boxing movies and vocational trainings ads.

Gordon Brown - after claiming he "eliminated boom and bust" and that he "saved the world", left us with just about the worst deficit, no savings, lots of gold gone, a complete mess of regulation, 100% debt/GDP of bank owned assets backstopped by the taxpayer, a gigantic public+private debt bubble, insane levels of unfunded liabilities... at the very least kept us the fuck out of the Euro.

It's French humor - much to subtle for the likes of us. It must be French - I swear the one on the left is Jerry Lewis.

The previous night Eden Hazard had announced his £32m transfer from Lille to Chelsea, which made him comfortably the most expensive


Belgian footballer of all time and smoothed his path to riches and global stardom. On Tuesday morning, though, the 21-year-old found it counted for nothing as he was late to leave his hotel room and saw that the Belgium team bus had departed for training without him.Hazard must now find a window in his preparations for the Wembley friendly against England on Saturday to purchase the present his team-mates decided will be his forfeit. Appropriately for the midfielder, it is a bottle of champagne. "Vincent Kompany will choose the label," the Belgium manager, Marc Wilmots, said. The suggestion was that the captain would select a very expensive one.Hazard can afford it. His five-year contract at Stamford Bridge is worth £100,000 a week after tax and there is every chance that he will hand over the bubbly with a swagger. Hazard is a byword for self-confidence and he revels in being at the centre of attention, as English http://www.microsoft.com audiences are beginning to find out.It was typical of Hazard, said observers in Belgium, to build the suspense on Twitter regarding his transfer destination. After the lunchtime cheap SoccEr ShOes teaser he waited until Monday evening to Real MadRid C.F JErseys tweet that he was bound for the European champions. His following on Twitter has rocketed.Chelsea have not been impressed. They like to control such announcements via their official channels and it will be interesting to see whether Hazard says anything more in the coming days. If he is smart, he will not. It will also be interesting dEsIgNer beLts to see how
