Banker Desert Island Joke

Recommended Posts

I was reading Stephen King's "The Dome" (very enjoyable BTW), and he mentions a banker/desert island joke, but doesn't tell it - anyone know what it might be? Here's one I made up...

3 bankers and a farmer are stranded on a barren desert island. When a ship rescues them several weeks later, the captain asks how they survived.

"Oh, it was easy," says one of the bankers. "We traded wheat futures with each other, and invested the profits in a water distilling plant. Then we realised the futures and took delivery of the wheat."

"Wow," says the captain. "Thats... amazing!".

"Oh, and we ate the farmer."
