Kickass low and high finance

Kickass, the doorstop dog, says the keeper lives in something of a fantasy world when it comes to finance, and is not surprised that for the past year or so he has been getting regular reports and corporate details from a large investment outfit in which his investment is listed at “.01 cent”—that’s one penny.

Then in the mail yesterday there was a free introductory issue of  a new periodical called Anglers Journal in which there were for-sale ads for boats, and one caught the keeper’s eye—a 92 foot 2011 “Viking Convertible” priced at $9.950,000.

The keeper is trying to figure out how to transpose the two numbers—one cent and $9,950,000, and he claims in this age of abject absurdity nothing is impossible, though it may require involving Russia.
