I made the front page!



April 09, 2008 – Comments (7)

Mom told me never to do anything that I wouldn't want to see on the front page the next day. Well, I'm so jazzed about being on the front page, I don't think that rule rules out anything. I made CAPS's front page! Feel free to picture me doing my rich, fat man dance of glee, jowls flapping wildly.

By the way, I may be biased, but I think my article's graphic is cooler than most I've seen so far.

Tastylunch -

I could barely wait for someone to ask. The fleas indicate two things: one, a symbol of poverty, as my net worth is probably a fraction of the median net worth of similarly avid investors; two, a creature that (as far as I know) can feed at the expense of both bulls and bears.

"Fleabag" is a term for an undesirable cat or dog, or in the case of true cruelty, fellow human beings, so it serves as a segue to:

Bagger, jargon for a stock that doubled, tripled (or what have you). From "two bagger" for a double and "three bagger" for a triple in baseball, in which the bases are referred to as "bags."

So it's rather a complex, artificial etymology that yields "FleaBagger," a relatively simple-sounding and punchy name. Finally, "three bagger" is the only pertinent thing that rhymes with "FleaBagger." Anything else you might think of has no meaning for me, and is completely coincidental.
