"A parable on how we got into this economic mess in the first place".
As the stockbroker, dressed in his pinstriped suit, stepped out of his BMW in Queen Street, Auckland, (it could well have been Sydney, London or New York) another car slammed into his door, shearing it right off!
When the police arrived the stockbroker was apopleptic."Did you see what that idiot did to my car, my beautiful Beemer(BMW)," he screamed."Have you any idea how much this car cost?"
"Sir!", the officer said, "You're so concerned about your car you haven't noticed your arm has been ripped off too!"
The stokebroker took one look at where his arm used to be, and screamed,"Where's my Rolex?
Some would suggest this is the capitalist value system in action?
