I work with a sweet gal – let’s call her Daniela, who loves nothing more than to regale us with dad jokes. Normally they are sweet and tidy one liners. Q: “Why is Dublin so so big?”…A: “It keeps doublin’ and doublin'”…boom tishhhh

Following the problems in the sub-prime lending market in America and the run on Northern Rock in the UK, uncertainty has now hit Japan.
In the last 7 days Origami Bank has folded, the Sumo Bank has gone belly up and the Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches.
Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.
The Samurai Bank are said to be soldiering on following very sharp cutbacks. The Ninja Bank are reported to have taken a hit, but thankfully they remain in the black. Sadly 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a really raw deal.
