Blankfein to Paulson: “Ok, Now What?”

http://dailybail.com/home/blankfein-says-to-paulson-ok-now-what.html

Read and laugh … or weep.

…Paulson, in a calm comforting voice says: "Take a deep breath and pull yourself together. I can help. First, let's make sure AIG is really going under."

There is a long pause, during which Blankfein checks the status of his credit default protection and other hedges against an AIG failure, yanks AIG's credit lines, and presses AIG with calls for collateral on credit default swap agreements on plummeting CDOs.

Blankfein's voice finally comes back on the line. He says: "OK, now what?"

Based on the world's funniest joke…

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?".

The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead."

There is a silence, then a shot is heard.

Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?"
