Well, does it?

Yes, it is official, Yakety Sax makes ANYTHING funny.

Think I stole this from Radley Balko, who incidentally has a great post up describing how a few "very smart" government bureaucrats will never be as successful at managing an economy as Smith's "invisible hand" of billions of individual transactions per day. Also incidentally, in the comments there's a link to this excellent economic free market essay, "I, Pencil." If you haven't read it (and you should've already, it's a classic) you really should. Puts the folly of the current government meddling in the economy (bailouts and otherwise) into perspective.
