Everyone's talked about this problem, but Ziggy is the first one to have done something about it. Up 4%. Nicely done.

There was never a doubt in my mind. Is the stock market a great thing or what?

Only 44% more to go - maybe Ziggy could pull out of the market to grease the skids?

Thanks Ziggy! It was a great day today. Hopefully, the Ziggy Rally will have some legs.

Perhaps Ziggy can appear on the networks tonight with a followup speech about what he's done to help us?

Sooo ya couldn't hold off - eh Zig - now do I visit Bloody Mary's Vodoo Shop while down in New Orleans - or are you gonna leave a few stock buys for when I get back in two weeks?

Granted - pretty impressive work though. Maybe rejuicing up my Gris Gris bag won't be strong enough to overcome the mighty Ziggy effect.

In which case I'll relearn how to sing a few bars of 'beer and wine ----happy days are here again'.

heh heh heh - .

Hey - after seeing Ziggy single handedly bring oil from $147 down to $30, I think we can now expect 4.9X on the upside!

Way to go, Ziggy.
I'd be happy to sprout some garlic bulbs early inside the house, if that would help with the fine details.

Nah, I don't believe that's all you did Ziggy! That little ole wimpy pledge isn't jinx enough to turn the market up. I think you secretly put on a little short position this morning.

Come on, 'fess up!

The Ziggy rally was pretty shortlived. Comeon Zig. Do something like short the market or sell out all of your equities. We need the boost.

I'm still continuing to put my money into the S&P index funds in my 401k and SERP and I'm feeling more and more like a dumbsh*t.
