Rough trade


If you want to see what Wall Street looks like today, but without the pathos, check out Sad Guys on Trading Floors, a collection of pics with wiseass captions. Here’s one of them:

Sad Guys is self-described as “turning the economic crisis into one of those clever internet memes” and says it’s “a product of the misplaced productivity of Chris and Jess.”

That would seem to be, if you follow the links, Chris Riebschlager, an ad art director in Kansas City, and Jess Hemerly, who’s in the publishing biz in San Francisco.

A tip of the fedora to colleague Robert Sietsema for alerting me to this good stuff.
