Behind the Financial Crisis - the Wrong Drug

I went to see Pineapple Express. Why is the condition of being stoned so timelessly funny? It is the awkwardness of disconnected incompetence - 'It's almost a shame to smoke it. It's like killing a unicorn... with, like, a bomb' - which, after a moment's reflection, reveals itself as more true than the grace of connected competence. The City boys should have used dope rather than cocaine.


  1. Indeed. Cocaine use and financial prudence don't mix. Nevertheless, while the cokehead is likely to be reckless with your money, the dope fiend is just as likely to forget where he put it.
