Who says life has to be complicated? Fine dining is one of my main hobbies. While many of the up and coming hot new chefs are making sauces with cactus needle juice and insist on ingredients from ports unknown, for my part, it is still hard to beat the simple things like a martini to kick start the party followed by a grilled veal chop and a great bottle of California Cabernet Sauvignon or a French Bordeaux.
On today's menu we have a simple, uncomplicated offering...the subprime mess explained by...stick figures (thanks to ECU Department of Economics Alumni Hall of Fame member Derek Pszenny). When this originally came across the desk of the funny economist (Hey that's me! http://www.funnyeconomist.com/) it was R rated. Well we can't have that. So I have made it into a G rated piece. This is a family web site. We want to make sure our itsy-bitsy econ bloggers don't need no naughty words explained by mommy and daddy.
So fasten your seat belts...with apologies to our Norwegian friends...if I must say so myself...this is funny. Click on the link below and then start the slide show from the beginning. For some reason I can't get it to just start there.
