Joke! Credit crunch in Japan

I thought some of you might appreciate this. Have a laugh!!



Credit Crunch to Hit Japan

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Japanese Banks are expected to be next affected by the Global Credit Crunch.

Since last week the Origami Bank has folded and the Sumo Bank has gone belly-up.

The Bonzai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches and the Karaoke bank is up for sale and is expected to go for a song.

Shares in the Kamikaze bank have been suspended after they nose dived.

The Samurai bank is soldiering on following sharp cut backs.

Ninja Bank has taken a hit, but remains in the black.

500 staff at the Karate bank got the chop.

Something fishy is going on at the Sushi bank. Analysts suspect that staff may get a raw deal.

Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there
