Humpty Dow-Jones Had A Great Fall

February 9, 2018

A wry quick-sketch comment on the stock market’s recent plunge.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average posted a 4.1% decline for the week ending February 2nd. That was its biggest weekly drop since January 2016.

Until this week– when things got worse.

This week (ending today, February 9th) is projected to be the Dow’s biggest one-week drop since October 2008.

    Marvelous illustration of the situation! Even the little bird on top of the wall – Love it! BTW this post inspired me to look up Humpty Dumpty in Wiki, since the rhyme we know never actually says he’s an egg but he’s always portrayed that way. Wow! Humpty’s had a violent life! And your thoroughly cracked version of him is the best so far!

      Gosh! That’s the kinda comment that eggs me on to greater McMuffins!!– thank’ee!! So there’s no concrete evidence that Ol’ Hump was an egg?? I’m shocked!– I always thought he was the patron saint of omelettes!! Breakfast will never be the same… 🍳🍳🍳🍩🍪🍭🍺🍼😊

    I have a nagging feeling that a dirty rotten scoundrel pushed Humpty from his lofty perch.

    Yea, he looks like an overbloated Humpty Dumpty on that stretcher. 🙂

A penny for your thoughts. I'm on a tight budget here.
