I already proposed Black Week on the Black Monday thread - but that's pretty boring. Maybe Crash Week or Screaming Week would be better.

This entire thread implies that this is the worst week. Another possible name is "the last warning sign" or even "the beginning of the end".

Just trying to cheer things up...
