Sad Guys On Trading Floors [Blog]

Sad Guys On Trading Floors

Turning the economic crisis into one of those clever internet memes.

My friend Chris Riebschlager in Kansas City and I created this blog to commemorate the media's portrayal of the recent stock market crash. It took off to the point where I almost can't believe who covered it. We had no idea this would turn into a 15-min-of-fame thing on the Internet. Just proof that viral memes are, well, exceptionally viral.
