Good piece on the beeb about why we need humour to see us through troubled times. There's a cracking sketch from the two Johns who deal with the subject with their usual acerbic wit.
A few reworked jokes as well:
Q: What is the definition of optimism?
A: An investment banker ironing five shirts on a Sunday night
Q: What is the difference between a pigeon and a merchant banker?
A: A pigeon can still put a deposit on a Ferrari
Q: What do you say to a hedge fund manager who can't short-sell anything? A: Quarter pounder with fries please
