Permit me, please, to corral Black Bears and Black Swans into different corrals —— for sharing a little bit of market levity.

First, a definition: bête noire ( plural bêtes noires )
  • French for Black Bear or Black Beast. An anathema; someone or something which is particularly disliked or avoided; an object of aversion, the bane of one’s existence.
Bêtes noires, I suggest, can cause the opposite effects of Black Swans —— Black Swans can be liked, but Black Bears are generally disliked unless outcomes of Bêtes noires are desirable, e.g. being short a stock that goes Chapter 11.

A Black Swan that causes VXX to unexpectedly increase would be desirable if you're long VXX.

Black Bear saved the Fat Lady's just-born-in-my-pond baby from drowning. I just couldn't do it. He tried to lift the Fat Lady out too, but she screamed, splashed water in his face, bit his ear and tried to poke his eyes out — Very Rude. 

Big Bird then saved the Black Bear drowning in my pond. 
Big Bird is ticked, flips him a Double Bird — Very Rude.

Big Bird not only ticked off Obama, he ticked off Sweetie the Never Upset Horse so bad, Sweetie spit on his beak — and Big Bird got first-ever photo of a horse spitting for Guinness Book of World Records.

Guy on Buffalo

Guy on a Buffalo and Big Bird might be able to get the Fat Lady out of my pond if Black Bear doesn't show up. Check out this Guy on a Buffalo (minus Big Bird, he may be too big to ride a buffalo bareback) video

Big Bird's drag'n and drink'n into Halloween

Big Bird gave the nasty old witch bad directions, a faulty GPS, 
and too much booze at Romney's family reunion

And Big Bird's got a serious eating disorder, "Birdlimia," 
but he can't stick his wing down his throat —
and he'll only take oxycodone pills, no laxatives.

Big Bird Is ticked having to carry his horse. Flips the Bird.

But, what do you get if you cross a Black Bear with a Black Swan? 
  • One bad-ass Big Bird with fat tails, fur and teeth, that will gobble the punch bowl, glass and all —— and Big Bird will piss off everyone at the party!

Big Bird took some lead to the head for pissing off everyone at the party 
and was trucked away bleeding as dead. 
But Big Bird got the last laugh — Any idea how?
HINT He called Romney

Last 3 photos were on TV, not Sesame Street :)
