As Andy Borowitz reports, Manufacturers of Downward Arrows Post Record Profits:
NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report) – In what stock market analysts are pointing to as a rare bright spot in an otherwise gloomy period for Wall Street, manufacturers of downward arrows posted record profits this week.
While makers of cars, computers, farm equipment and practically everything else saw their fortunes plunge this week, producers of downward arrows notched double-digit gains, inspiring investors to snap up their shares like never before.
With all the hurricane talk crowding out any real political discussion, I figured some humor was in order.
Actually, I think I've also read a serious story somewhere over the past week that our exports of chopsticks to China were up.
