Lest this little gem of humor be lost in all the Year in Review articles that have appeared in recent weeks, the first edition of This Make$ Me Laugh highlights the sobering year-end review by Jason at InvestorGeeks.

The line that gave me the most giggles:

My trading strategy for that first half of the year can be summed up as “find great company stocks, buy them when they are overpriced, then sell like a pussy when the stock loses money…”

While I’m sure my amusement would see no end if you all decided to adopt this tactic, you’ll want to actually read the article for some much better investment advice that Jason picked up during his tribulations.

This Make$ Me Laugh: Showcasing the Funniest in Personal Finance

It’s hard to imagine that any website in existence could possibly match the awesome level of funny found at Punny Money. But every so often, I’ve been known to laugh at a joke told by someone else.

In an effort to encourage the use of more wit and humor in the somewhat dry topic of personal finance, you’ll be seeing a new ongoing series here called This Make$ Me Laugh. I’ll be highlighting articles by other finance writers who put the “fun” back into “funancial.”

If you’d like to nominate an article (yours or someone else’s) for this series, just send me an e-mail with the link and something to get me interested in clicking on the link (funny title, excerpt, whatever). Please put “This Make$ Me Laugh” in the subject line. Submitted articles should meet the following guidelines:

  • Be about money. Personal finance, investing, real estate, retirement, business, etc. are all fair game.
  • Be funny, witty, or otherwise humorous. The whole thing doesn’t have to be funny. But if I don’t laugh, it don’t go up.
  • Be recent. Please don’t submit posts that are more than a week old.

I hate rejecting people, no matter how lame they are; so if you don’t hear back from me, consider that a polite “maybe next time.”

So start tickling your funny bones and get writing!
