This is the day that the DOW Jones
Industrial Average fell over 4% to close below 8000 at 7949.09. It had reached a high of 14167 in October of 2007.
It is widely believed to be related to the enaguration of Barak Obama
, the first black President of the United States of America. Many workers took an Obama Day
. Others simply lost money
in the market due to those taking Obama Days.
It is a date which will live in infamy. We will all remember Black Tuesday, and perhaps tell our grandchildren
of a time when we let this happen to ourselves.
I just lost $40,000 of my retirement fund in one day. Fuck Black Tuesday.

Dispatcher: a 1488?
Cop: a 1488, a black man trying to move into the white house
Dispatcher: its just Black Tuesday
