Adam: Yes, I took all of them. It's my invention called "banking..." The Real Fall From Grace
Sure, and blame it on her….I see how it is….That fruit is rotten to the core…(See what I did there?)
The snake left after this announcement knowing he could never equal such skullduggery.
Hey, he may have apples, but I bet she’s got quite a,…um…..Gee…How do you spell pair again…?
Good night , Gracie.
So that is where all those bad apples in the banking industry came from!
He’s going to take those apples and invest in a cider mill.She’s going to wind up with vinegar.He’ll get rich, she go to the serpent, whose real name is Bernie the Attorney, and she’ll invent alimony !Thus she’ll wind up with all his apples…
Hey, Superfrog, who’s cider you on? Hey, you haven’t seen Gracie have you?
Oh, dang, I forgot to prune my plum tree…Oh, peachy, he said, raisin his voice.. oh, there she is!…Good night Gracie…
let us break up the banks. jail the bad bankers. the ones who money launder drug money, got around sanctions, finance hate groups, and involved in libor. the ones whose hedging strategy failed miserably ($2 billion loss). the ones who used illegal trades just to keep their jobs, but resulted in a $6 billion loss for the bank. the ones who paid off rating agencies for their bad investments. the ones who cooked the books for many companies and even a country to get into the euro. the ones where we bailed them out, and are ungrateful. the ones who go on financial tv shows and proclaim everything is gold, but it is really glitter.
Silly Adam. Money doesn’t grow on trees.
So that’s where the one bad apple started spoiling the whole bunch!
Just couldn’t resist it, could you? A joke about banking set in the garden of Eden and you have to use it to slam the bible (again!). Give it a rest and just enjoy the joke.-Here, troll…come on, eat it, a nice Wheetabix for you…go on, there’s a good troll….yes, munch some and then run along.-[Having fed the troll, he wanders off through the garden.]
Looks like Liberalism to me. What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine
Actually, the first bankers were probably temple prostitutes in ancient Babylon.
If the apples were not rotten, this couldn’t have been the creation of banking….
As someone who is proud to be a community banker, sure dont appreciate Wiley always bashing on bankers. Yes, there are some bad apples in banking, just like in any industry. But most bankers are just ordinary citizens and are your neighbors and friends.
It had been a while since Wiley last let his anti-business prejudice come out. I was afraid something had happened to him. (Yeah, yeah, so it’s just a comic. That’s what all the philosophically tone-deaf say.)
Where greed begin. Where will it end? When I lose my mortgage. What bank was it that evicted THE family from Eden?
“Money is the root of all evil…I think I need more money.”
If Adam absconds with all the apples, how are we going to discover original sin, which you have to admit has been a lot of fun over the centuries..
This explains why, when I look up ‘banker’ in the dictionary, there is a picture of a guy wearing a mask.
How come Adam and Eve are always depicted with belly buttons if they were the first man and woman?
The word you wanted is “hoarding”. Anyone else want to comment on my education?
Joan Alos…. Yeah that’s it…it was a pair of pears I was thinking of….Cantaloupes are good too……..
Careful Wiley, you are showing your political side.
The real truth is Adam lost the case in court ….becaaaause instead of shoiwng up for the “appeal” he went to the county fair and judged “apples” instead! Many thanks to Green Acres for all the terrific LAME humor I have been subjected to at an early age.
