Top 10 credit crunch jokes

Mirror.co.uk is here to lighten the doom and gloom mood with our top 10 of credit crunch jokes doing the rounds of the internet.

1) I went to the ATM this morning and it said "insufficient funds"..


I'm wondering is it them or me?

2) Petrol is way too expensive these days. I actually can't afford to drive.

3) With the current market turmoil, what's the easiest way to make a small fortune?

4) How do you define optimism?

5) What's the difference between an investment banker and a large pizza?

A large pizza can still feed a family of four.

6) What's the difference between a merchant bank and Katie Price (aka. Jordan)?

Both are institutions whose reputation is built on assets that, on closer inspection, turn out to be entirely artificial, vastly over-inflated and in danger of going through the floor at any moment. But at least Katie Price is still worth something.

7) What's the difference between the BBC's business editor Robert Peston and God?

God doesn't think he's Robert Peston

8) George Bush was asked today "what did he think of the Credit Crunch?"

9) What's the capital of Iceland?

About £3.50

10) Why have estate agents stopped looking out the window in the morning?

Because otherwise they'd have nothing to do in the afternoon
