This Sketch Would Have Been Better in 2009

Bank Usury Brant Banksters back in the day

Of Usury, from Brant’s Stultifera Navis (the Ship of Fools); woodcut attributed to Albrecht Dürer


INTERVIEWER sits across from INTERVIEWEE over a large mahogany desk in a spacious corner office.

Interviewer: Do you have any hobbies or pastimes you think are relevant to this position that you would like to share with us?

Interviewee: Sometimes, during lazy summer evenings I like to find the flies buzzing about my house, collect them and pull their wings off–just to watch them struggle and flail about in vain as exhaustion overcomes them and they die. And then I collect the fly corpses and put them in jars. And I look at them. Then I wait for the maggots to hatch in the spring and begin my harvest anew.

Interviewer: Excellent, I think you’ll make a great fit here at Goldman Sachs.
