Well, there's no late night comedy show for investors, so I took it as my calling to launch one.

In case you missed the initial installment of "6 Wall Street Riddles", I'll give it another go, with jokes covering financial news that broke over the past week. Apologies in advance if they fail to educate, amuse, or enrich.

1. Superstitious investors will be rooting for the Boston Celtics tonight, because the market rose during the last championship winning streak for Boston. The market fell during the Los Angeles Lakers' three-peat in the dot-com bubble years. Why else are bulls rooting against the Lakers?

They are confusing Kobe Bryant with Bear Bryant.   

2. Despite the hype over Steve Jobs unveiling the new Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone during last week's Worldwide Developers Conference, the blogosphere was abuzz over the supposedly emaciated state of Jobs himself. Why is Jobs so skinny?

He knows that skeletal fingers are the best way to peck out the right letters on the iPhone's clunky touchscreen keyboard.

3. Time for a knock-knock joke:

"Knock, knock."

"Who's there?"


"Yeah who?"

"Yahoo! (NASDAQ:YHOO) would turn down a $47.5 billion buyout offer!"

4. Why did Yahoo! turn to Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) for answers?

Who hasn't?

5. Major Borders Group (NYSE:BGP) investor William Ackerman is trying to smoke out a buyout offer from Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN). Why won't it happen?

With Amazon's Kindle-backed quest to deliver books digitally, it is trying to take down borders -- and Borders.

6. Krispy Kreme (NYSE:KKD) posted its first quarterly profit in a year. What was the jaded market's response to the doughnut maker's breakthrough?

That's one. You need 11 more to fill the box.
