Jumbo shrimp. Business ethics. Jobless recovery.
You know, I like that cartoonist depictions of plutocrats haven’t changed at all since, like, the 1920’s.
Seriously, does anyone dress like that anymore?
Yes, toaster, and particularly people in the financial services industry, who tend to be much more formal than those in other industries. I dress in a pinstripe when going to our New York office, which works mostly with financial services - and in khakis and blazer when in San Francisco!
This started to change to casual around the turn of this century, but apparently after 9/11, so many people had funerals to go to (it’s still not that large a community) and therefore wore suits to work, that everyone started wearing them again.
Oxymorons live, along with other kinds.
@Reasons: If you had more money than you can count you’d do the same thing too!
So, the ‘toon is about poor management of the shrimp industry?
It’s about bankers living it up on our dime, while we’re out on the corner with “Say, brother, can you spare a dime?”
^^ no, poor management of the jumbo shrimp industry.
