The Boy Who Cried Wolf on Wall Street

Once upon a time there was a man called Gollum who worked in the stock-exchange market. His task was to manage and regulate the company’s finances. The company was investing in various companies. One day, a man came to the company and said: “Do you want to invest in the best company in the world? I am the famous Mr. Gandalf and I rule the country of Japan, invest in me and you shall be rich beyond your dreams”. The company was very humbled at the request and decided to invest immediately. Gollum watched the scene, and being the prankster that he was, he suddenly cried “Wolf!”. The man explained that Mr. Gandalf was an infamous Wolf on Wall Street and could not be trusted. To his naughty delight, his colleagues listened, and decided not to invest in the promising company. Within the next year, Mr. Gandalf’s value went up a hundred percent. The man’s company were dissappointed, and told the man he better pick up his game.

A year had passed, and one day another man came to the company and said: Do you want to invest in the best company in the world? I am the famous Mr. Radagast and I rule the country of Norway, invest in me and you shall be rich beyond your dreams”. The company was delighted to have this oppurtunity, and decided to invest. Gollum, the prankster, once again watched the company’s negotioations with Mr. Radagast, and cried “Wolf!”. Once again, the company listened to Gollum and decided not to invest. Within the next year, Mr. Radagast’s company had gone up two hundred per cent. The company’s frustration grew, but they let Gollum stay.

One day the following year, another man came to the company. His name was Mr. Saruman. He said: Do you want to invest in the best company in the world? I am the famous mr forest and I rule the whole of Mordor, invest in me and you shall be rich beyond your dreams”. Gollum knew that Mr. Saruman was not the man he said he was, he had been decieving companies for years. Gollum once again cried “Wolf!”, and this time he really meant it. His company said: “Not this time, Gollum. We’re not going to miss out on another opportunity”. The company invested a majority of their assets in Mr. Saruman’s company.

The following year, all the money had vanished, as well as Mr. Saruman. As it turned out, Mr. Saruman was actually an infamous wolf on Wall Street. Gollum’s company went bankrupt and he lost his job because of his pranks.

Gollum is now working and living in a mine, and for some reason looking for something called “the one ring”.

The end.
