Generically titled “Family Gathering,” my first take was that this had something to do with Wall Street, and the meltdown. (Wasn’t that Black Tuesday, by the way, when all those Wall Street types jumped off the ledges?) But then, maybe the humor here is much more random.

Either way, not three days ago, I was really aiming for some mirth over this holiday stretch. Who knew?
