All Coffered Up With No Place To Go!

Even the banks are falling on "hard times"...uh...if that means "more money than you know what to do with."  These jerks royally screwed us, crashing the economy...and their narrow-gauge profiteering even has them tripping up themselves, having broken their own business model. If you want to use a bank to deposit savings - which one assumes from the origins and alleged social utility of banks would be as welcome as buying a hamburger at MacDonalds - increasingly their message is "don't bother."

The New York Times - "Banks Flooded With Cash":
Bankers have an odd-sounding problem these days: they are awash in cash.
