Vote For Best Stock Market Crash-Er Squirrel

And it begins. Here are my six picks for best (or weirdest) financially-themed use of the now-famous "Crasher Squirrel" of Banff, the critter that's been popping up in every piece of pop culture. Vote through 5p ET tomorrow. The winner gets a wonderfully lame T-shirt we concocted using iron-on technology. It's what we imagine the new Burger King jerseys for Spanish soccer team Getafe would look like.  Note: this is not an official T-shirt, ok? It's our attempt to make one, and, frankly, it's the only thing I have at the moment to hand out as a prize...but this is more about bragging rights, yes?
