The Elderberries by Corey Pandolph and Phil Frank and Joe Troise for October 16, 2006
Dusty: I'm ruined! I bought this barrel of crude oil as an investment, and the price dropped! The Professor: No problem, Dusty! Buy a second barrel at the lower price and that lowers the cost of the first barrel! It's what stock investors call "cost averaging." Dusty: "Cost averaging"? Sounds like something a posse might've strung a feller up for in the Old West. Professor: It's perfectly legal!
