Funniest thing ever on the Internet

Some informative text on the writings of Hayek and his running battle with Lord Keynes.

Illustrated less dismally than some.

Hat-tip: Instapundit

"Hey dear, what are you reading?"
"Oh, just a little essay on monetary policy and government induced boom/bust economic cycles."
"Yeah, sure you are."

Our Anna Nicole Smith Photos idea was obviously not original.

"but monetary factors alone are not enough to explain the fullness of the bust."

I spoiled the joke for the rest of you. Insty linked and it was something about Hayek. Yadda yadda. I do not know the young lady. The first picture seems a little large for a profile pic or illustrative photo. But, whatever, it's about Hayek, right?

The second picture is a bit more coquettish and one starts asking "who is that young lady and what has she to do with the story?"

By the third or fourth, I did get the "what are you reading?" inquisition. Some facets of human life are truly universal. "Hayek, dear. FA Hayek."
