Sometimes, we let financial satire speak for itself because the basic premise of what is being said cannot be made funnier or darker.

This statement from Facebook [the same Facebook that has spent the last 18 months in perma-crisis mode after letting user data be used to sell products and weaken the notion of global democracy] announcing its plans to enter the cryptocurrency market, is the best example of this phenomenon:

The world truly needs a reliable digital currency and infrastructure that together can deliver on the promise of “the internet of money.”

Securing your financial assets on your mobile device should be simple and intuitive. Moving money around globally should be as easy and cost-effective as — and even more safe and secure than — sending a text message or sharing a photo, no matter where you live, what you do, or how much you earn. New product innovation and additional entrants to the ecosystem will enable the lowering of barriers to access and cost of capital for everyone and facilitate frictionless payments for more people.

Facebook...wrote this.

We find ourselves humbled by true comedic brilliance.
