Wall Street Occupiers Get a Haircut

By | October 25, 2011

The Occupy Wall Street gang are cleaning themselves up!  Well, not really.   A group of barbers who were apparently born without a sense of irony has volunteered to give free haircuts .  On Monday afternoon, six barbers set up chairs along Broadway in NYC.  Each barber wore a shirt with the name of a large corporation on it.  The gesture was meant to reflect a popular banking term called “taking a haircut”, which refers to adjusting a mortgage.  Group representative Michael Kink says Wall Street bankers are happy to “take a haircut” on the top 1%, but they need to rescue the economy by offering to do the same for the other 99% of Americans.

Now if only someone could come up with a clever banking term about taking a shower.
