Good one. Gotta love The Onion. There is really a lot of good advice on that site cloaked in satire.

Must be a good system. Can become a multibillionaire just by watching Kramer. No need for money up front, let alone having to risk it.

"NEW YORK—According to a report released this week by Forbes magazine, every person who has regularly watched CNBC’s financial program Mad Money since its 2005 premiere is now a multibillionaire."

Yeah I know, after that sentence they do talk about investing money

Gotta love the Onion.

You very well may have become a multimillionaire, if you'd done the complete opposite of Kramer.

Thanks for posting!

Love the Onion. I'm always amused when someone will post an article on FB and people think it is serious. The comments are almost more entertaining than the article.

The findings reportedly came as welcome news for the cable channel following
recent reports that over half the regular viewers of the morning show Squawk
Box
had died of exposure after winding up penniless and destitute on the
street.
I have been searching for a way to become a "multibillionaire" for the last 70 years but have been watching Bloomberg instead of Cramer. Oh well!
