recession bermuda-style

Posted: April 17, 2009 in Bermuda, humour

This cracked me up this morning in the Bermuda Sun’s 10-page report on the recession:

Ordinary man on the street Julian Grant perhaps summed it up best when he said: “We used to go on three or four cruises a year but it will only be a couple this year.”

Only in Bermuda! The rest of the world is facing mass unemployment, plummeting property values and bankruptcy but Bermuda is still in a world of its own. One big reality check coming right up. Fred Barritt’s column also put a smile on my face this morning. His helpful recession tips included using your AIG shares to tip grocery store packers.
