面白い(おもしろい)株式市場(かぶしき・しじょう)報告(ほうこく)

とあるメーリングリストを通(とお)して回(まわ)ってきた面白(おもしろ)い記事(きじ)。

Today’s stock market report: Helium was up, feathers were down. Paper was stationary. Fluorescent tubing was dimmed in light trading. Knives were up sharply. Cows steered into a bull market. Pencils lost a few points. Hiking equipment was trailing. Elevators rose, while escalators continued their slow decline. Weights were up in heavy trading. Light switches were off. Mining equipment hit rock bottom. Diapers remain unchanged. Shipping lines stayed at an even keel. The market for raisins dried up. Coca Cola fizzled. (Rocky Mountain News)

本物(ほんもの)のレポートではなく、商品名(しょうひんめい)の後(あと)、その商品(しょうひん)の特性(とくせい)を表(あらわ)した言葉(ことば)が市場(しじょう)の上(あ)がり下(さ)がりと掛(か)け合(あ)わされて使(つか)われいているのです。経済用語(けいざいようご)の勉強(べんきょう)にもなります。
