I also like the tongue and cheek sentence which Bill Maher once said he'd give Banksters so they'd never give us another 2008:

1. You roll a flatbed truck out to the 50 yard line during Super Bowl half-time. On the the flatbed are three easy chairs.

2. You send rolls of plastic tarps over ever lines of seated fans, as though the crowd was at a Gallagher show.

3. You bring out say Lloyd Blankfien, Anthony Mozilo and Richard Fuld, hand cuffed, shackled feet. Drop one each into each chair.

4. And then the winning ticket out of the crowd raffle beforehand gets to turn the key on the detonator charger which explodes the two kilos of C4 under each chair.

We do that for a half-time show and I'll bet Moral Hazard and organized crime on Wall Street recedes faster than shore water before a tsunami.
