Following the problems in the financial sector in the US, uncertainty
has now hit Japan. In the last 7 days the Origami Bank has folded, the
Sumo Bank has gone belly up and the Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches. Yesterday, it was announced that the Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today's
shares in the Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.
While Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cuts, the Ninja
Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black.
Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at the Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal.
