I just had to chime in here, though this is starting to get a
little bit forced...



Meanwhile...

A spokesman for struggling Arigato Bank was quoted as saying that
"banking has become a thankless industry."

Toyota Bank has been driven into bankruptcy.

Sayonara Bank, the target of a successful takeover, is saying
"good-bye" to its depositors and stockholders.

And the stock price of Tamari Bank has fallen so low that the
venerable institution is hardly worth a hill of beans. (Yeah,
that's obscure, sorry)

In the last 7 days Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone
belly up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its
branches.

Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and
will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were
suspended after they nose-dived. While Samurai Bank fell on its
sword, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain
in the black.

Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts
report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where
it is feared that staff may get a raw deal.
