Funky… that's what the lady said. Funky is the word, and funky is the thing.

Or maybe the thang, as Mr James Brown or Mr Sly Stone or Mr George Clinton might have put it, back when funky had a meaning that it doesn't always have today.

The funk we're talking about now is less to do with gettin'-up-offa-that-thang, and more to do with gettin' out of the stock market before they bring it all crashing down again. Those incurable funksters.
