Ten thousand or so bankers (like the photogenic London based couple pictured here) will lose their jobs, and already there are like 296 Craigslist ads up now offering casual sex to be performed on/by them. And none of the ads seem clever enough to be fake!

Video Oh, P.S., ha ha ha, Howard Stern punked everyone, no wonder our tipsters at Lehman seemed a lot less sanguine than these guys. But bankers of the banks, take it from the media, which might not be so entranced by this recession if our entire industry weren't in the throes of an irreversible decade long contraction: fucking is superior to financial success!
