o hai i have ur FAIL rite heer

Not to be outdone by Citigroup's announcement of massive FAIL the other day, yesterday banking and investment giant Merrill Lynch came out with a report of its own massive FAIL. They reported losses of $7.8 BILLION (or the equivalent of the the GDP of the Republic of the Congo) in the last quarter of 2007. All told, they reported net losses of $22.1 BILLION for the year (or, the entirety of Costa Rica's GDP).

Dammit, I never should have given Citigroup the FAIL of the year award, cuz by total losses Fail Merrill Lynch TOTALLY pwned - Citi only lost $18 billion for the year.

Okay, Lynch - you get the massive, catastrophic, outlandish FAIL of the year award.

"He said, son, I've made a life out of readin peoples faces,
And knowin what their cards were by the way they held their eyes.
So if you don't mind my sayin, I can see you're out of aces.
For a taste of your whiskey I'll give you some advice."
