And now it’s time for a very important episode of Mad Money with the part of Jim Cramer being played by Tim & Eric.  That’s right!  Tim & Eric are gonna talk about get rich quick schemes, only without the false promises that stuff like this actually works!  Heck; that alone makes this a better show to learn about finance from than Mad Money!  The episode begins with The Mayor watering his precious porcelain birds; an obsession I wasn’t aware of prior to this episode but I guess The Mayor just enjoys making his birds wet.  Anyway, Tom comes by to pay The Mayor a visit and to see if he’d be willing to sign a petition that will save the Jefferton Bird Sanctuary from being shut down and the land sold off to the highest bidder.  Seems like a noble cause, right?  Well The Mayor doesn’t seem to be as optimistic and instead just burns the whole petition to a crisp; destroying the signatures of five thousand Jefferton citizens who have already signed!  Seems like a dick move to me, but that’s because I didn’t understand The Mayor’s INGENIOUS plan that he had cooked up to save the sanctuary!  Remember those porcelain birds he was oh so eager to continuously spray down?  Well what he proposes for Tom is to INVEST in porcelain birds; assuming that they’ll go up in value and can be sold at a higher rate in the near future while of course letting him have one of those birds for free!

“Something doesn’t seem right here…”     “Just focus, Tom.  Focus on this triangle right here.”     “It looks kind of like a pyramid to me.”
