Best Of Latewire Why Bailouts Are Stupid (Illustrated Version)

I had about 30 minutes and wanted to write an article about why government bailouts are inherently stupid, but I didn't have time to write it in language for people who didn't already know economics to understand. Instead, with the aid of Google Image Search™, I came up with this series of incoherent drawings which I've now wasted too much time on to throw away. Enjoy!

I 'best of latewire'd this. If there was (and there should be) a best of the best of latewire then this would go in that category also. Although a drawing of Scrooge McDuck teabagging Uncle Sam in the pennypit of the moneybin would make this post so absolutely perfect that the fabric of space time would shat itself in stupendous awe and wonderment.
