Cameraman: “The financial crisis is ‘over’ and with that comes the freedom for the Fed to shred confidential documents at any fucking time they like. No more 3am double secret probation ninja shredding.

    I feel the same way about this site. No longer need to hide posts behind fake crappy IT issues. Post them for the public!

    Every time I walk by a spy shop, I think that I need to put some surveillance on somebody. Rick’s been acting fishy! I need to buy a safe that looks like a Spray ‘N Wash can. “Hey, Mitch, can I use the Spray ‘N Wash?” “Yeah, if you want to spray your shirt with DOCUMENTS!”

    @1 I’m not ready to joke about the IT issues until they’re actually over.

    WTF, how is this not a caption contest. Now that Bess is a published “journalist” and is eating fatty tuna with Jim Chanos, she’s getting complacent.

    @Bess, IT issues are never, ever over.

    @4 please. I didn’t make it a caption contest b/c if you haven’t noticed we’ve been having severe to ass-rippingly severe tech issues that have made it difficult to comment (and say, leave a caption) as recently as…this morning. But there, I added the CC. I don’t want to upset you my special princess.

    Bess, you can never say ass-rippingly enough for me. Your brains and filthy mouth are enough to drive this white boy from Virginia crazy.

    “white boy from Virginia”

    Redundant. Please amend.

    @Bess – your IT issues are like a toyota, they will never stop, no matter how hard you try.

    @4 – if you were so jazzed up about it, why didn’t you START the caption contest?

    It’s not a real caption contest guys. It’s fake, like bess’s tits, dont participate.

    I’d be partial to a Lightning the Tortoise caption contest (w/ Erin Burnett’s can poised tight right nearby).

    On orders from his vampire squid overlords, Dudley tells the CodeShred drivers to drive against traffic on the one-way street. Dudley does not ask why. Dudley does as he is told.

    The Federal Reserve formally announces the acceptance of shredded paper as collateral.

    A novel approach to draining excess reserves.

    apple savings bank on 72nd and b’Way.

    @24, similar concrete brick look to the apple bldg on 73rd, but note the maiden lane street sign, not to mention the Brooklyn bridge bikeway sign, biatch biatch.

    Serious question: I’m all for privatization, but shouldn’t the Fed exercise more control over document shredding? Maybe they shouldn’t be using some dodgy 3rd party shredding service?

    @25 who you callin’ dodgy, bitch?

    I’ve seen that truck there before, although usually after-dark, cus they’re crafty like that over @ the Fed

    Anal knows what’s up. The Fed only trusts the Shred.
