Sub-prime hits Japan

I've just received these jokes today, and Id like to share it with you:-
Following the problems in the sub-prime lending market in America and the run on HBOS in the UK, uncertainty has now hit Japan.
In the last 7 hours Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut back some of its branches. Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived. Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black.
Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal.
Morning Breakfast Show In Singapore.
This really happened on a Singapore radio recently. I think some of you from the South had heard it on radio too.
DJ : Good morning. This is Power 98. Would you like to play a game?
Contestant : Sure....why not?
DJ : Good. Its a simple game. When I say something, you have to give an answer that is opposite to what I have said. For example....when i say Sharp, you will have to answer Blunt. Get it?
Contestant : Ok. That's simple.
DJ : Sun
Contestant : Moon
DJ : Black
Contestant : White
DJ : Tall
Contestant : Short
DJ : Dog
Contestant : Cat
DJ : Man
Contestant : Woman
DJ : Cock
Contestant : CIBAI!!!
(Then, there's radio silence...........)
DJ : This happens sometimes when we are on live. Let's take a commercial break here..
