The Humor in Lending!

This is really funny!  The bank's have simply been too compassionate!  Ha!

My last entry was about a great Frontline feature about the banking meltdown. It was a serious program, but worth the time and effort. This is just for fun. There is a great deal of truth in the commentary. Like much British humor, its hilariously understated and in many ways quite thoughtful. Yes, its fairly long for YouTube clip, but I think its worth the time. Isn't a smile and a laugh worth 8 minutes of your time?
