I'm surprised this one got a low rating. It was awesome.

For those who don't get the reference (only reason I could assume someone would vote it Mediocre): http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080831003047AAsYkFe

And if you've ever seen the stock market in operation, it is a madhouse.

Best comic since a long time.

#5 Manutraveler Mon, 24 Aug 2009 18:21:44
It already was a clear E, but slowpoke's comment makes it an E+ (if that existed).
