Here's a selection of some of the other better lines we received this week:
"I got you some stock in Scott tissue...as the market has reached new bottoms."
“I didn’t expect to run into such Stern Bears!”"I’m hoping my stimulus package gives you a little something to chew on besides me!"
"You think Wall Street’s grizzly, well Pennsylvania Ave ain’t no picnic either!"
"Hopefully this stimulus package will hold you over until I'm gone."
"Ranger Bernake asked me to give you this pic-a-nic basket."
"Bernanke told me to give the choicest cuts to a stern bear, or a Bear Stearn...heck, something like that."
"This $600 will change you from a bear into a bull!"
"I brought you some diapers...as you've remained unchanged."
"Mr. Stearns, a gift has arrived from a Mr. J. P. Morgan Chase, sir."
“To make things better I was told to bear gifts!”
