I’d never keep my pet tiger in a cage! That is cruel.

He loves wandering around the neighborhood, getting into trouble. I’ve got some hilarious stories about the things he’s done.

Just make sure you wash that sardine oil off your boots before you get into the cage with your pet tiger.
Here I was just worried about bear and bull markets. Is there also a tiger market that sneaks up and gets you when you're not looking? With this many animals it's like Bit Top is IN!

The smart money is selling equities and buying shipping containers of sardines. Inflation-proof and always in demand!

Seems like a lot of work.  I just invest in sardine ETFs.  Ticker: FSHH

Sure it's easier to invest in paper fish assets. But do you really believe they'll have enough physical cans backing up those sardine ETFs when the FSHH hits the fan?

Are the sardines already in cans? I would do more research before jumping into the sardine market. It could be a really stinky mistake if you get stuck taking physical delivery of un-refrigerated sardines. I know my neighbors might be unhappy.

That's why it's so important of staying on top of rolling your sardines over (to your neighbor's backyard).

I'm always for diversifying with some international stocks, so why not try adding some Swedish Surströmming to your portfolio.  Clearly this is the best inflation hedge since you're supposed to wait until the fermentation makes the can bulge before you eat it.

Unless it melts UP. (Something to consider...)

 ...Okay, after some quick scientific and technical analysis, I've determined it will NOT melt up, it will melt down, down, down. Because gravity. And because top is in.

This seems so bizarre to me. I know one sonogram technician that was furloughed for a month or so (went back May 1) and an oil company employee whose hours were reduced. Aside from that, I don't know anyone who is not working.

Hey @DadJokes here is some more quantitative data from a study that came out on Thursday.



In Michigan 27% of their labor force have filed for unemployment just since March 14th (so less than a month).

In Georgia, Hawaii, and Kentucky, one in three people have filed for unemployment.

States like Colorado and Texas are comparatively much better off with on the order of one out of every eight workers having filed for unemployment so far.
Texas numbers are artificially limited to a rather significant degree.

Also, was there a time when this thread was *not* nuts? If so I may have missed the point.

You're late to the party...
https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/investor-alley/dollar-milkshake-theory/

Where can I get a $1 milkshake?

Every time I see that thread title I have the same reaction.

I didn’t want to watch a video so I really thought he was saying the dollar will get so strong milkshakes will be $1.  Which I guess was the opposite of the point.  He should have called it the $100 milkshake theory

I’m sure it’s expensive because it has gold and other precious metals on TOP.  The frugal among us can still make it pencil out if we are willing to perform the necessary reclamation and processing of the metals.

You already route your toilet to your compost pile, right? Then you save on your sewer bill and your vegetables are super tasty. Spending a little time digging gold and other precious metals out of the compost is definitely mustachian!

Just make sure to let your compost cure for a few weeks before digging through it. Otherwise you get a nasty rash...

Wait - I thought cash was trash? Now I am confused.

Maybe hold waste management, GLD, shake shack, and cash to be safe?
