One Word Description Needed

Implosion is taken. Even my one word alluded to by the picture is cliché. Is meltdown one word? Precipice is too time sensitive as is abyss. Surely history will make its own decision as the dear Baron discovered. Perhaps the coming conflagaration will be named after a person or place; the big Mozillo, rise and fall of the inland empire. Who knows? EN knows and will take a stab at here.

One word, one word only please.

"Meltdown" is one word, verily. As in all things, the Russian language provides us with the best words. "Крах" or even perhaps "разлом" work nicely.

Unfortunately, the credit problem is too complex to be summarized in a soundbite. Especially when Joe Public liked the party while it was still going on. It was pretty good while it lasted, even for non-homeowners.

Therefore, the word that may be chosen is "catastrophe".

I like your style, GameOver.

Hell, "Game over" is two words, but fits as a soundbite.

I'll be honest with you, I have no idea what the f*** you guys are talking about in these past two posts. You still get my support, however.

Good lawd. How can he allow something like that on his own blog, if has any feelings at all for his negligible slip of a spouse. Maybe he's pissy and resentful towards her, and he gets at her by passing on vile suggestions concerning her. OR - both of them are so sociopathic and disassociated, she's directing him to do so and they both laugh about it?

This Casey webphenom is packed-to-burstin with multiple pathologies in every direction. It's a good 'un.

Any truth to the statement that they managed to dig up [Galina's] ex-boyfriend?

okay. spill it. I've been following the saga way too closely and NEED to know....

hmmm.... maybe he has some "pictures", which we could use the tip jar proceeds to purchase. King Friday would raid the land of make believe treasury to support that, um, noble cause!

A new Casey pic? Has anyone ever seen this picture of a disheveled-looking Casey in a hotel room, with Galina in the back moping on a bed??

It comes straight from Gaysey's flickr account, but I'd never seen it before...

Yes I know it isn't one word but it describes things so accurately words fail me. The song could be made into a bubble parody.

Does anyone have some sort of index of weblinks of non-casey released pics?

Benoit,

The thought bubble above G's head reads:

Thought bubble about C's head reads:

By; FMW aka Infidel Woman


1. bubble bloggers

2. economists Crystal Balls broke

3. Fed Bank’s Marketing/Public Relations campaign sucked


4. Secret Ponzi; Word got out

6. Food got too expensive to afford a mortgage and eating

7. Had to mail in the keys whist postage was still affordable


8. Banks can not afford home owner insurance on re-possessed houses

9. Too many CEO’s got fired and their 100 million dollar severance check’s had to come from somewhere


10. Fliptards
