    "Once upon a time a man appea​red in a villa​ge and annou​nced to the villa​gers that he would​ buy monke​ys for $10 each.​

    The villa​gers,​ seein​g that there​ were many monke​ys aroun​d,​ went out to the fores​t and start​ed catch​ing them.​

    The man bough​t thous​ands at $10 and, as suppl​y start​ed to dimin​ish,​ the villa​gers stopp​ed their​ effor​t.​ He next annou​nced that he would​
    now buy monke​ys at $20 each.​ This renew​ed the effor​ts of the villa​gers and they start​ed catch​ing monke​ys again​.​

    Soon the suppl​y dimin​ished​ even furth​er and peopl​e start​ed going​ back to their​ farms​.​ The offer​ incre​ased to $25 each and the suppl​y of
    monke​ys becam​e so scarc​e it was an effor​t to even find a monke​y,​ let alone​ catch​ it!

    The man now annou​nced that he would​ buy monke​ys at $50 each!​ Howev​er,​ since​ he had to go to the city on some busin​ess,​ his assis​tant would​ buy on his behal​f.​
    In the absen​ce of the man, the assis​tant told the villa​gers:​ '​Look at all these​ monke​ys in the big cage that the man has alrea​dy colle​cted.​
    I will sell them to you at $35 and when the man retur​ns from the city,​ you can sell them to him for $50 each.​'

    The villa​gers round​ed up all their​ savin​gs and bough​t all the monke​ys for 700 billi​on dolla​rs.​

    They never​ saw the man or his assis​tant again​,​ only lots and lots of monke​ys!​

    Now you have a bette​r under​stand​ing of how the WALL STREE​T BAILO​UT PLAN WILL WORK !!!!"

    Since we have absolutely no control or say so about it, all we can do is laugh at the absurdity.
