Haiku - Thain & Wentworth

John Thain, Designer,
redid Stan the Man's office:
1 point 2 million.

This next one needs some preface to contextualize it. There is a company, J.G. Wentworth, that pays off annuities, structured settlements, etc. in cash. I'm sure what they do is to calculate the present value and give you a discount to that for the liquidity. Instant cash. I'm not sure if it is regional where I grew up (Kentucky) or not. They have really catchy jingles that my brother and I learned by heart. "It's your cash. Use it when you need it. Call J. G. Wentworth 8-7-7 CASH NOW." I'll post a video clip if I remember when I go home. But here is the haiku:

I don't want to wait
for my stock options to vest,
call J. G. Wentworth??
