Fannie, Freddie, and You

Complicated numbers and head-spinny factoids about banking and borrowing and budgets and financial service institutions making you wish your workplace sanctioned afternoon naps? Aw, we totally get it. For that matter, so does Michael Banks–the kid just wanted to feed the damn birds with his cool nanny, and those crusty Olds were all, “Yo, shortie, give us your monies, NOW!”

Not everything is as easy to synthesize on a Monday as news about war, motherhood, and football.

With that in mind, perhaps you’d like to get cozy with an afternoon cuppa char and Radar‘s helpful primer to the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac buy-out. If it still doesn’t make sense, head over to the Daily Intel, where they’ve composed a whimsically named For-Idiots, By-Idiots Guide! I guarantee you won’t feel like a moron reading it, because the writers are calling themselves stupid! See what they did there? Thank gawd. Now, do feel free to join me in a “Fidelity Fiduciary Bank” sing-a-long.
