"You've Got the Fed"

Feeling oppressed by relentlessly bleak financial news? YouTube parody to the rescue!

I do not recommend living on a diet of coffee and apocalyptic financial news headlings, but if you are, like me, beginning to feel an incipient ulcer forming in your stomach, then you probably could use a few good belly laughs.

From the satirists at VersusPlus, to the tune of Carole King's "You've Got a Friend":

"You've Got the Fed"

My favorite line:

I'm a Yankee
Getting cranky
At this Greenspanky tank
of Bernanke

That is some quality rhyming.

(Thanks to Naked Capitalism for the sorely needed dose of black humor.)
