I wasn't sure where to post this, but Scott has the situation with 'toxic' assets so well sewn up I decided to put it where it might be taken more seriously:

For those of you not familiar with the comic strip Dilbert, check into it.  In sardonic format, this is as close to business reality/Catch 22/insanity as it gets.
 
Characters:
 
Dilbert:  the unfulfilled, hopeless employee consigned to "Cubicle Hell."
 
Dogbert:  the quintessential "Consultant"/tech support troll/financial "expert."
 
Catbert:  the Evil Director of Human Resources.
 
Ratbert:  Hmmmm, can't really remember.  Big smile
 
Wally:  the ultimate survivor.  He does nothing; isn't responsible for anything; always manages to stay out of the line of fire, and always survives.  Wally is the happiest character in Dilbert.
 
The Boss:  the ultimate boss.  He knows nothing; dumps on everyone; is terrified of upper management; gets paid a lot to do all of the above.
 
Scott Adams is the cartoonist.  The best insight into the insanity of business existence.

Another year! Another deadly blow!
Another mighty empire overthrown!
