According to inside contacts, the Japanese banking crisis shows no signs of ameliorating. If anything it's getting worse.
Following last week's news that Origami Bank has folded, we hear that Sumo Bank has gone belly-up and Bonsai Bank plans to cut back some of its branches.

Karaoke Bank is up for sale and (you guessed it) will probably go for a song. Meanwhile shares in Kamikaze Bank have nose-dived and 500 back office staff in Karate Bank got the chop.

Analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank and staff there fear they may get a raw deal.
