Laugh-out-loud guide to the absurdities of the financial system. FREE 2/3 FEB

‘Give a man a gun and he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank and he can rob the world.’

From Lehman Brothers to The Royal Bank of Scotland to Barclays, the pin-stripped demons of Wall Street and the City of London have bought the global economy to its knees.

But Mark Leigh is here to lighten the mood.

‘Crash! The Official Bankers Joke Book’ is a laugh-out-loud guide to the absurdities of the financial system.

Greedy brokers.

Venal lenders.

Pitiless managers.

And call centres that would turn Mother Theresa into a chainsaw-wielding maniac.

They are all here in all their hilarious detail.

A banker was taking a shortcut across a field when he stepped in some cow dung. Looking down he shouted, “My god, I’m melting!”

I’m not saying that the customer service in my local bank is bad, but when I went in and asked the cashier to check my balance she leaned over and pushed me.

The definition of optimism: a city banker who irons five shirts on a Sunday.
