Why didn't CNBC see that?

Didn't that screaming CNBC guy see it coming when Goldman Sachs started paying out in Scooby Doo "ruh roh" checks?

But seriously, I had to order new checks this am, and the whole "what do your checks say about you" was hard to stomach.

What does it say about America that the top five checks sold by my bank are "Winnie the Pooh"?

Our Winnie the Pooh Checks share all the fun of the Hundred Acre Woods with you. These Winnie the Pooh Checks bring all the fun and friendship of Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet and Pooh to your wallet.

God knows I need more fun in my wallet, but the most fun is when my checks say "this woman has money in her account." Which hey, is more than you can say for Goldman Sachs.

    It says people are as clueless about their checks as they are about their finances. Personally, I think Scoobie could have done better than this lot.

    But I LOVE that your money's being magically transported in...

    wait for it...

    "The Mystery Machine."

    If that doesn't sum it all up, I dunno.

  3. I can actually say...I have had those checks. I have since gone to a "hippie" peace sign design, but the Scoobie Doo checks were awesome.

    I don’t believe any of the crap that Obama and the Democrats are proposing legislation to harvest body parts of Marijuana users, brain dead because Marijuana causes their Corpus callosums [] to fail, in order to appease the Religious Right on Stem Cell Research.

    Bailout of Big Banks: Way too damn much.

    The cost of paper checks in the digital age: Too much, but not THAT much.

    Having poo in your wallet: Priceless!

  6. I would have had some money if it wasn't for you rotten kids.

  7. Winnie the Pooh? Please...

    I go for the plain Jane cheapo checks. And now that I pay bills on line I hardly ever use them anyway, thank goodness!

  8. As much as I like Winnie the Pooh and Scooby Doo, whenever I write a check it is alway going to somebody I don't like. (i.e. the phone company, the power company, the water company, etc.) I don't think that they deserve to be exposed to whimsy and hijinks.

    Eeyore displays just the kind of passive-aggressive resentment I want every payee to see on my checks.

  10. my family says i'm eeyore but my checks are plain and fairly lifeless, like my savings.

  11. I'll gladly pay you Tuesday with this post dated third party out of state Scooby Doo check for some Scooby Snacks today!

  12. That was a spooky post, Scoob.

    Bank? I am the member of a federally chartered credit union and thereby an owner. Our plain checks ["drafts"]are green with a cool mountain 'swoosh' that speaks to the fact that we just built a LEED Platinum building. "Credit Unions: not for profit but for service."

  14. I've gone with classic films, landscapes, some charity groups... or the plain type.

    And here I thought "fun in the wallet" was the emergency condom...

    "And we would have destroyed the world economy and seized more wealth, too, if it weren't for - for - um, no one. Suck it, Krugman! They're not listening! Bwa-ha-ha-ha!"


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
