June 2018 Market Commentary

It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World…

Benjy Benjamin (Buddy Hackett): Look! We’ve figured it out seventeen different ways, and every time we figure it, it was no good, because no matter how we figured it, somebody don’t like the way we figured it! So now, there’s only one way to figure it. And that is, every man, including the old bag, for himself!

Ding Bell (Mickey Rooney): So good luck, and may the best man win!

Benjy Benjamin [to Mrs. Marcus (Ethel Merman)]: Except you, lady. May you just drop dead!

(From “It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World”, 1963)

“I’ve listened to preachers,
I’ve listened to fools
I’ve watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
One person conditioned to rule and control
The media sells it and you live the role

Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane
I’m goin’ off the rails on a crazy train
I’m goin’ off the rails on a crazy train”

(“Crazy Train”, by Ozzy Osbourne)
