Share the puns!

A computer glitch at the London Stock Exchange yesterday halted trading on what would have been one of the busiest days ever, following the US government's bail-out of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The Daily Mirror won my heart, AGAIN, with:

STOCKS AND SCARES

My pun idea:

THE OOPSIE 100

I AM PROUD OF THIS ONE!!

Love it. How about "Stock and Flaw", "Bulls and Bears caged" , "London blocked exchange"?

Hello anonymous punner (who I probably know)! Great thoughts there. I still like mine best though ;)

I'm usually more modest...but on this occasion I feel my pun was actually BETTER than the Mirror's.

But keep up the good work!
