Well if they aren’t already Hip/Hop/Rap stars or pseudo ganstas, I bet they will be soon enough! Especially after seeing the wonderfulness that is Bossy’s art!
Or….there’s always the chance Diddy will chance his name to Freddie Mae or Fannie Mac!
Yeah, it could happen.

My strategy regarding financial issues is to let my Roth IRA and 401k plan do the work while I stick my fingers in my ears and go “la la la la la.”

Fanny Mae sounded more like a precocious Victorian child to me…but why not…they make good rappers too!
What interests me even more is how you produce your wonderful artwork?
Are you an Adobe girl?
Excuse me if you have revealed all on an earlier post…I am a new girl in town. (Love your Dooce on youtube!) Does she speak to you yet?

can you draw a picture of me and put those 6 pack abs in. Actually, I’ll take the hat and bling too. I’ll show it at the store when they ask for a photo ID because I dont sign the back of my credit card.

Well then you should know that extreme “playa” Clinton is to thank here for passing all those
“ballin” laws years back to make it fair for everyone- including those who had no money to buy a house.
Holla back know!

You can’t make me read it! Lalalalalala!
Big Hair Envy saysAugust 21, 2008 at 9:34 am
I’m impressed that Freddie Mac is wearing one of your t-shirts. Have sales increased?
Megan saysAugust 21, 2008 at 9:44 am
What about Sally Jesse Raphael? She is a rapper, right? Don’t ruin this for me Bossy.
Carolyn Online saysAugust 21, 2008 at 9:52 am
Oh my gosh I love the six pack on Fannie Mae.
Anjali saysAugust 21, 2008 at 10:02 am
Well Barack Obama has been in the news so much, he must be about to release an album. Though I’m pretty sure he’s purely hip hop.

If Rapper Fannie Mae joined up with Sally Mae and Ellie Mae, they could call themselves the Beverly Chillbillies.

An aside, and a little known fact:
Every time that JODI sees US women’s volleyball player, KERRI WALSH, she is reminded a little of a taller BOSSY.

(thought i posted this but don’t know where it went!)
B, you’re thinking of P. Fannie and Freddie Mac Daddy.
Sherry can’t be serious. Bush was well aware that predatory lending had become rampant and chose to do nothing. Big shock there. The government was actually preventing states from enforcing their own consumer protection laws. I think it’s interesting to note that Eliot Spitzer had been really vocal about this just before the FBI pounced.
davido saysAugust 21, 2008 at 11:14 am
Freddie Mac gonna bust a cap in yo mortgage market liquidity..
MarathonMom saysAugust 21, 2008 at 11:17 am
Those bitches need to be on some shirts man. Once again, Bossy’s depiction of the sitiation is bang-on and brilliant.
tj saysAugust 21, 2008 at 11:34 am
…Boy, if it wasn’t your wicked colorin’ book skills up there that got me Miss Bossy it was the comment from Chesapeake Bay Woman that pushed me over the edge! lol… “Beverly Chillbillies”…*gack!LOL!*snort*giggle*… :oD
…Btw, where are the nostrils on Rapper #1? Stocks are tankin’ and the nose is the first to go ‘er what? ;o)
Undomestic Diva saysAugust 21, 2008 at 11:47 am
But something that’s not funny? Most people don’t realize that the FDIC that insures their money up to certain amounts is actually a PRIVATE CORPORATION (hence the “c” in FDIC) and they are just as susceptible as any other company to going under/bankrupt/defaulting.
Wow. I just bring good news everywhere I go today!
Pamela saysAugust 21, 2008 at 12:31 pm
Wouldn’t that be so sad if it turned out Elliot Spitzer wasn’t ACTUALLY screwing a Very Expensive Prostitue, but was thrown under the GeorgeDub Express for calling out the financial ruin about to envelop our country.
Because now, here in NY state, we have a governor who likes to talk about how sensitive he is to the media. That’s great.
Jen @ Daily Mish Mash saysAugust 21, 2008 at 1:08 pm
I just can’t stop cracking up at those pictures. I always thought the same thing about those names, but you illustrated it so perfectly.
Hippo Brigade saysAugust 21, 2008 at 1:26 pm
okay, I can see how freddie mac sounds like a rap star, but fannie mae? All I can picture is a joan cleaver-type pulling a fresh baked cherry pie from the oven.
p.s. you’re a genius with the illustrator. You got some mad skills, girl.
Foolery saysAugust 21, 2008 at 3:38 pm
The name “Fannie Mae” plays very, very differently in the U.K. and Australia, so I’m told, where slapping someone on the “fanny” would get you arrested. So, yeah, right there with the whole rapper dude.
Isn’t that right, Bossy’s U.K./OZ readers?
chuck saysAugust 21, 2008 at 4:16 pm
the pics are rockn’!
Mr Farty saysAugust 21, 2008 at 4:20 pm
Ha-ha, BOSSY said Fanny!
Only Merkans would call a slut a tramp, a tramp a bum, a bum a fanny and a fanny a pussy.
Jen saysAugust 21, 2008 at 10:57 pm
I’m in the had two brain cells to rub together, got a mortgage I could actually afford, that *Wasn’t* an A.R.M. camp. But we also drive 13 year old cars, and don’t buy things we don’t have the cash for, including a house. This wasn’t an easy lesson to learn though, and I do really feel for people who are shackled with debt, and foreclosure. That’s a steep hole to dig yourself out of.

colette saysAugust 22, 2008 at 10:15 pm
Waahh!!!! Where’s the bailout for those of us who live within our means??? How come I don’t get sumtin free cause I got sense? I don’t feel sorry for my neighbors who eat out every night, drive new cars and wear the latest department store offering and then WONDER WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THEIR MONEY AND WHY THEY CAN’T AFFORD THEIR HOUSE?
colette saysAugust 22, 2008 at 10:18 pm
sorry for the rant!!
I am positively sure that all those people with too much house got scammed by everyone who told them they could afford it. They just got sprayed with the “See it, want it, buy it” juice and so its not really their fault.
Cat McK saysAugust 23, 2008 at 8:12 am
For me, Freddie Mac sounds like the sort of name Sesame Street might give a hip-hop style puppet, new to the “street”. Fannie Mae is more like a newly arrived character on Petticoat Junction.
p.s. Boo on Sherry, for startin’ sump-in and trying to make your art into a political fight. Booooo.
