The stock market had another big fall today.

With all the falls the market has had over the past few weeks, it’s amazing it hasn’t broken a hip or something.


I’m bracing myself for the day when the market cries out, “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!”  That’ll be the day to run for the hills.

What’s the market’s problem, anyway?  Is it an inner ear thing?  You know, something like vertigo?

Is it weak leg muscles or stiff joints? Maybe the stock market needs a regimen of squat thrusts and glucosamine.

Or is it that the market’s just not looking where it’s going? “Hey! You’re going down. Do us all a favor. Take your time.”
