ARMONK, NY—In a move hailed by corporation owners as a forward-thinking humanitarian gesture, IBM emancipated more than 8,000 wage slaves from its factories and offices Monday.

"You are all free, free to go!" said IBM CEO Samuel J. Palmisano to the 600 men and women freed from the corporation's Essex Junction, VT, location. "No more must you live a bleak, hand-to-mouth existence, chained to your desks in a never-ending Monday-through-Friday, 9-to-5 cycle. Your future is wide-open. Now, go!"

The 600 newly freed workers cleared out their desks and were escorted from the building within an hour. In spite of Palmisano's jubilance . . .

Initial claims 382K, well below consensus. Futures rallying, ES 1039 currently, NQ 1395. Last week revised up to 405K (surprise surprise).

Naturally we believe the govt numbers... and Boobus Americanus sleepwalks off the edge of the energy-crisis cliff clutching his shares of "Crisco", Yoohoo and GooGah munching on his Yum Yums and Ho Hos. Future historians will have a hell of a time figuring out what the hell Americanus neanderthalus was thinking and exactly what brought on his sudden demise... - Henny Penny

Well, good night everyone. I gotta go lube up for tomorrow's regular end-of-week Gold Slapdown and Stock Index Bear Punishment Rally Weekend Greenprint. ...Probably another Shock-and-Awe Gap-Up-Open and Wire-to-Wire Meltup Runaway Bull Charge Mo-Mo Spike to Fresh New All-Time Lifetime Highs, culminating in a 4:15 yelping scalded dog runoff with panic short-covering and legal not-held bad double fills due to fast market conditions, plus quote system freeze-ups and trading platform lock-outs along the way. *yawn* typical gov't Friday. - Shorty

Looks like a flagpole day to me..

Remember the Three Stooges episode where they were plumbers? Curly ties in the water pipes to the electrical system and the light fixtures spew water. They're trying to sneak out and run into the butler. "What are you looking for?" he asks.
"A drink of water".
"Turn on anything, you'll get it!"

Kinda like what's going on here, don't you think? Buy anything, it will go up!

:huh:

Some MM opened the ante on XLNX at 31.00 (a measly 100 shares) up from the 30.19 close. Should be an interesting day. Well. . . off to the Quarry. See yas lata.
