Fred's Bank

I've noticed that since the banking "issues" have started, and especially since the mention of the bailout, quite a few people have come to the Thoughts looking for Steve Martin's bit about "Fred's Bank." I used the title for a post about missing federal funds back in 2005, and later updated it with links to Steve's site* and some other fun things.

What I'm not sure of is: Are the people who are searching for that comedy bit going to use it lambaste the banking industry? Or are they seriously hopeful that Fred has opened a bank because, quite honestly, the "right coat pocket" way of doing business actually seems a bit safer than what else is going on these days...

*Oddly, when I checked the link before posting this it said the account was suspended. Come back to us, Steve!!
