  • New! – Your Sunday Evening Under the Radar Haiku April Surprise

    Posted by Jonathan on April 15th, 2018 (All posts by )

    I didn't do it I swear

    It was no accident, comrade.

    Great ideas, principles;
    Socially clueless.
    Like atheists and swingers,
    Tend narcissistic.

    On CNBC
    Stocks down by fifty percent
    Are rated “strong buy”.
    Your electric car
    Ran down my fake service dog.
    It’s complicated.
    Internet biz tools:
    Too often designed by kids,
    With stupid features.
    Your Uber driver:
    Doctor from Venezuela.
    History repeats.

      Thanks Jonathan – these were great. And in ten years will it be a South African?

      Quit using Facebook,
      and and you’ll get in fewer
      pointless arguments.

      Adolescent kid
      Weeping hysterical fit
      Can’t find gym t-shirt

      Victorian and
      Edwardian era books
      Are what I like best

      which makes sense. “Buy low, sell high”, right?

      Not all depressed stocks are actual bargains, nor all elevated stocks overpriced. But that’s generally where to start looking.

    4. Grurray Says:

      No way to decide
      If today will develop
      Same as yesterday

      As long as we cling
      To guns, religion, and gold
      We’ll see tomorrow

    Chicago Boyz values reader contributions and invites you to comment as long as you accept a few stipulations:

    1) Chicago Boyz authors tend to share a broad outlook on issues but there is no party or company line. Each of us decides what to write and how to respond to comments on his own posts.

You may think that we deleted your comment unjustly, and you may be right, but it is usually best if you can accept it and move on.

    2) If you post a comment and it doesn't show up it was probably blocked by our spam filter. We batch-delete spam comments, typically in the morning. If you email us promptly at we may be able to retrieve and publish your comment.

    3) You may use common HTML tags (italic, bold, etc.). Please use the "href" tag to post long URLs. The spam filter tends to block comments that contain multiple URLs.
