I wasn't sure where to post this, but Scott has the situation with 'toxic' assets so well sewn up I decided to put it where it might be taken more seriously:

For those of you not familiar with the comic strip Dilbert, check into it.  In sardonic format, this is as close to business reality/Catch 22/insanity as it gets.
 
Characters:
 
Dilbert:  the unfulfilled, hopeless employee consigned to "Cubicle Hell."
 
Dogbert:  the quintessential "Consultant"/tech support troll/financial "expert."
 
Catbert:  the Evil Director of Human Resources.
 
Ratbert:  Hmmmm, can't really remember.  Big smile
 
Wally:  the ultimate survivor.  He does nothing; isn't responsible for anything; always manages to stay out of the line of fire, and always survives.  Wally is the happiest character in Dilbert.
 
The Boss:  the ultimate boss.  He knows nothing; dumps on everyone; is terrified of upper management; gets paid a lot to do all of the above.
 
Scott Adams is the cartoonist.  The best insight into the insanity of business existence.

You forgot Lucy
Another year! Another deadly blow!
Another mighty empire overthrown!
And we are left, or shall be left, alone.
