The actual caption:

David Saethre works in the Euro Dollar Pit at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, after the U.S. Federal Reserve raised a key U.S. interest rate a quarter-percentage point August 9, 2005. The U.S. central bank's policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee unanimously voted to lift the benchmark federal funds rate, which can sway borrowing costs throughout the economy, to a four-year high of 3.5 percent.

Still jealous of his London counterparts and their tussle with Greenpeace activists back in February, Saethre repeatedly taunted the visiting grade-schoolers with shouts of "Sod Off, Swampy!"

DRUDGEBREAKING: Stanley realizes he has stumbled onto eBay gold, as he snaps a picture of Irving's bald spot, which resembles the secret John Roberts / Helen Thomas love tryst. When later questioned about the find, Stanley said, "Now I won't need to sell that piece of toast with the image of Terrell Owens telling Andy Reid to shutup."
