NEW YORK (AP) — Early this morning witnesses said a man, who is known as “The Fly” on internet blog iBankCoin, was struck by lightning–after cursing the stock gods for bestowing him with “reckless investments.” This all happened around 10:30 am  near The Four Seasons Hotel, where “The Fly” has been known to loiter.

Bob Lobabobdobo from Queens said he saw “The Fly” throw a giant ceramic jar on the ground, yelling to the sky “you bastards, you call this winship, down 3% for the day–stupid sh*ts?!” Mr. Lobabobdobo said after that he heard “thunderous music from the skies”, followed by a bolt of electricity so intense, it turned “this deranged man into a heap of ashes.”

Another eyewitness said “The Fly” was laughing hysterically–looking at his iPhone– just before throwing the mysterious ceramic jar on the ground.

His ashes have been placed into a small plastic cup– and will be put  inside of a pineapple coffin for proper burial this weekend.

    I don’t trust any stock or any of these companies which the stock comes from. Worked in enough companies to know they are all run by scumbags and I don’t trust these crooks and wall street for one second. They are all scams and I’m just in it for the buck. A vehicle to make money. No matter how big a bull market it is!

    Feels like I’m in a dynamite stick car, except while getting pushed down the stairs.

    Weird market.

    Just read this:

    Wall Street Journal
    A memorial service is being planned for Financial Blogger Fly for this Friday at Midnight on Staten Island. Fly did not believe in God so it will be held at the Staten Island Ferry dock.
    Slated to speak will be The Devil, Dennis Kneale, “Jog On” Grant, Various Illegal Immigrant Rights Groups, and his 4th grade English Teacher.
    Pulled pork sandwiches will be supplied by Woodshedder and donations can be sent to Jake Gint for the construction of a Gold statute next to the bull on the corner of Wall and Broad.

    We shall not mourn the loss of the fly, for he has “banked coin” at our expense far too often.

    (nemesis pees on grave, only to electrocute himself, proving one last time, the fly is winning, even when he appears to have lost)

    Holy shiet dawg. I hope you’re doing okay. It’s only money.
