Earlier this evening a buddy of mine started an IM conversation with me. Here's approximately how it began:

Him: Shit.
Him: You there?
Me: Yeah, man, what's up?
Him: My bank got taken over.
Me: HA-HA!
Me: Mine, too.
Him: lol
Me: Which one?
Him: Wachovia. You?
Him: ahhh, sucks.
Me: S'ok, I'm broke.
Him: me too. lol
Me: haha

I guess this is where the meek inherit the Earth?
