Recent reports indicate the Japanese banking crisis shows no signs of
improving. If anything, it's getting worse. Following last week's news that
Origami Bank had folded, it was today learned that Sumo Bank has gone belly up.
Bonsai Bank plans to cut back some of its branches. Karaoke Bank is up for sale
and is going for a song.
Meanwhile, shares in Kamikaze Bank have nose-dived and 500 jobs at Karate
Bank will be chopped. Analysts report that there is something fishy going on at
Sushi Bank and staff there fear they may get a raw deal.
