Banking Is the Best Financial Service of All Time: Tell Us Your 'Kanye-isms'

By now, you've probably heard about rapper Kanye West's little act at the MTV Video Music Awards. He jumped on stage while Taylor Swift was making an acceptance speech for best female video, swiped the mic from her hands and said that singer Beyonce should have won that award because her video was "the best video of all time"-not Taylor Swift's.

By now, you've probably heard about rapper Kanye West's little act at the MTV Video Music Awards. He jumped on stage while Taylor Swift was making an acceptance speech for best female video, swiped the mic from her hands and said that singer Beyonce should have won that award because her video was "the best video of all time"-not Taylor Swift's.So much for civility. He eventually did apologize to Taylor, however.

Still, as a result of Kanye's rude behavior, there have been Kanye-isms popping up all over the Web showing Kanye giving his opinion on a variety of issues, thanks to the wonders of Photoshop. Such as this.

No doubt, Kanye would spout off about banking and technology if given the chance. So, the editors at BS&T decided to have some fun and came up with a few Kanye-isms of our own. Yo, Bernie Madoff, I'm happy for you. I'm gonna let you finish, but Charles Ponzi was the best crook of all time!

Yo, 2009 economy, I'm happy for you. I'm gonna let you finish, but the Great Depression was the best depression of all time!

Yo, Twitter, I'm happy for you. I'm gonna let you finish, but Second Life was the most over-hyped Web site of all time!

Yo, contactless, I'm happy for you. I'm gonna let you finish, but wampum was the best payment system of all time!

Got some banking/tech Kanye-isms yourself? If so, send them our way. We'll run the top five in next Friday's newsletter...And then we promise not to give Kanye any more attention again!
