On mar­gin

Finweek English Edition - - PIKER -

A client asks his ad­viser, “Where should I invest my money?”

“Put it on booze,” the ad­viser says. “Where else do you get 40%?” A stock­bro­ker was fill­ing out a job ap­pli­ca­tion when he came to the question, “Have you ever been ar­rested?” He an­swered “no” to the question. The next question, in­tended for those who an­swered the pre­ced­ing question with a “yes”, was “Why?”

Nev­er­the­less, the stock­bro­ker an­swered, “Never got caught.” _________________________________________ Two stock­bro­kers are in a queue in a bank when, sud­denly, armed rob­bers burst in, wav­ing guns and yelling for everyone to freeze.

While sev­eral of the rob­bers take the money from the tell­ers, oth­ers line the cus­tomers, in­clud­ing the two stock­bro­kers, up against a wall and pro­ceed to take their wallets, watches, and other valu­ables.

While this is going on, one of the stock­bro­kers jams some­thing into the other stock­bro­ker’s hand.

With­out look­ing down, the sec­ond stock­bro­ker whis­pers: “What is this?”

The first replies: “It’s the $100 I owe you!”
