I think these guys are all trained professionals competing in posed reaction shots for valuable cash & prizes. I can hear the director now: "Gimme angst! Now fear!! Despair!!! No, no, do it like you mean it!!!!"

Pretty soon we'll be reading that Mark Bennett is planning the pilots of "Survivor: Wall Street" and "Celebrity Wall Street Apprentice"...

Heeeey, speaking of "guys", where are all the hot chick Wall Street traders? What about Jessica Simpson in "The Newlywed Wall Street Traders" or Paris & Nicole Maria Bartiromo & Becky Quick in "The Simple Life of a Wall Street Trader"?

Second favorite:



A plug for the website Daylife...you can search any topic for pictures in the news. Sources include Getty, AP, Reuters, etc. I really enjoyed scanning the daily pictures from the Olympics.
