“If [Ben Bernanke and other leading figures in the Federal Reserve] really told us what they are talking about after three glasses of wine late at night, the markets would wet their pants and it would be all over,” Mauldin said. [CNBC]

    So that is a strong buy for wine and depends?

    From the perspective of one heavy social drinker, pants-wetting in no way means “it’s all over”.

    “markets” wetting their pants makes it move.

    Imagine four Jamesons, two-sided tape, crushed glass, a scorpion, and the bartender from Minetta’s…

    I wonder if they say, “UBS doesn’t suck anymore!”

    I see Bernanke more of a guy who would slugs picklebacks on a 2 for 1 night rather than waste that type of special on wine.

    UBS is great!

    “Someday, I’ll be living in a big old city,

    And all you’re ever gonna be is mean.

    Someday, I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me,

    And all you’re ever gonna be is mean.

    Why you gotta be so mean?”

    Probably the same types of dudes that buy one signature executive suit at regular price and say “fuck the one that’s half off and your incredibly positive/almost religious-sounding commercials.”

    What would the markets do if he shot his mouth off during a 3-day levamisole bender?

    If peeing your pants is cool, consider me Miles Davis.
