Bad Financial News in Japan

Regrettably, more bad financial news ................

Following the problems in the sub-prime lending market in America that has hit a number of investment banks and the run on Northern Rock in the UK, uncertainty has now hit Japan.

In the last 7 days:-

Origami Bank has folded

Sumo Bank has gone belly up

Tempura Bank is in hot oil

Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches

Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song

shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived

Samurai Bank are soldiering on following sharp cutbacks

Ninja Bank are reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black

500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop

Analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal

haha! I didn't know this was a joke post when I first read it. I thought Japan have really nice sounding banks! Origami bank, Sumo bank, Tempura! Then as I read on, I realised ok, there's no such nice sounding banks in Japan! My favourites are Bonsai Bank, Origami Bank and Sushi Bank : )
