"Little Piggies" and Wall Street

Today, a little ditty penned by George Harrison and sung by the Beatles.

Posted in honor of all those pimps, liars, thieves, hucksters and con artists that seem to flock to Wall Street like a moth to light.

Have you seen the little piggies
Crawling in the dirt
And for all the little piggies
Life is getting worse
Always having dirt to play around in.

Have you seen the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts to play around in.

In their styes with all their backing
They don't care what goes on around
In their eyes there's something lacking
What they need's a damn good whacking.

Everywhere there's lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon.


  1. Love that song! I just did a post using Bowie's Helden(Heroes):

    And what's up with wakeupfromyourslumber, the main page of stories has been static for a year or so?

  2. Uhh, I haven't had any problems accessing the main page of WUFYS and the latest posts.

    I'll send this in to the WUFYS web master and see what they say.

  3. Ahhh OK, I see the posts now... the "Must Reads" articles have been up there for a long time though...


Please stick to the topic at hand. Anyone trying to hijack this blog with long, winding comments about other topics or spam will be booted.
