Origami Bank folded last night. Apparently Sumo Fund Managers went
belly up and Bonsai Bank, after a period of stunted growth, now plans
to cut back some of its branches.
Kamikaze Bank took a dive and 1,500 staff at Karate Bank got the
chop. Analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi
Bank and staff there fear they may get a raw deal. Onsen Bank has
taken a bath and even Miso Bank is in the soup. The share value of
Samurai Bank has been slashed.
On the plus side, now is a good time to buy Karaoke Bank, its shares
can be had for a song.
