JRE Keeps You Entertained All Weekend: Hello Ma Baby, Hello Ma Honey

The mood around the markets lately has been one of unbridled optimism. Bank stocks are soaring (the KBW Bank Index was up 20% - twenty percent! - just yesterday); risky currencies like the AUD are up more than 10% from their recent lows; and the catchphrase of the last month has been “green shoots”. (Related: but apparently equity market liquidity is evaporating. Hmm.)

So here’s a cartoon to keep you entertained. (Not quite an Anna-Coren-grade segue, but it’ll do.) Steven Spielberg called _One Froggy Evening_ the finest cartoon short ever made, and IMDB thinks it’s the fourth best short movie ever. Enjoy.
