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.

3. Time for a knock-knock joke:

5. Major Borders Group
With Amazon's Kindle-backed quest to deliver books digitally, it is trying to take down borders -- and Borders.
6. Krispy Kreme
