Madoff was the last straw

The Elders of Zion finally call it a career:

The Elders of Zion, the venerable and shadowy Jewish organization that controls the international banking industry, news media and Hollywood, has announced that it is disbanding so that members can retire to Florida and live out their golden years on the golf course.

“We had a good run,” said one senior Elder, reminiscing over old photographs of world leaders in his musty, wood-paneled office at an undisclosed location. “Maybe we ran the world for just a little too long. Anyway, now it’s Obama’s problem.”

After a humiliating year left most of its financial holdings, as well as the entire civilized world, on the verge of collapse, the organization has re-defined its mission in terms of bridge games and making it to restaurants for the Early Bird Special.

If Tim GeithnerLarry Summer and Ben Bernanke are really the best that the current generation of Jews can offer, I think we’d be better off trying to lure the Elders out of retirement. At least Hyman Roth always made money for his partners.
