To Lighten The Mood

It’s not a stretch to say the country was left feeling a little gloomy in the wake of Standard and Poor’s gimmick downgrading of the American sovereign credit rating. So here’s a little something to poke fun at their folly. It’s a farcical set of downgrades imagined by the writers at New York Magazine’s Daily Intel blog. My favorite? A downgrading of to BB for having “claimed it was going to be partly cloudy; turned out to be mostly cloudy.” Have a look and a laugh.
