Laugh Out Loud At Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve
LOLFed.com Launches, Combines LOLCats and Central Banking
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Apr 08, 2008 – The new website LOLFed.com was launched to help anyone with a sense of humor make sense of the actions of the Federal Reserve, financial markets, and Federal Reserve chair Ben Bernanke and former chair Alan Greenspan.
Featuring the aforementioned cast of characters as well as anyone else from Wall Street whose name is in the news, LOLFed.com combines financial reporting with the popular internet “LOLCat” meme, using photos with captions to tell financial stories. For example, “Emo Bernanke” helps to illustrate a Federal Reserve federal-funds rate cut.
“Not everyone will understand LOLFed.com,” says site founder and chief blogger Alyx Skadden of Gordyville Media. “However, for anyone who enjoys the LOLCat meme and has an understanding of financial markets – or wants to develop an understanding of what’s going on in our economy and would like to have a laugh or two along the way – LOLFed will, hopefully, bring a smile to their face. And, in a market like this, we don’t all get too many reasons to smile.”
The site is updated daily with new financial stories and illustrations. To see LOLFed in action, visit http://LOLFed.com.
