As promised, here is the weekend open thread, where you can discuss any topic you like.

For your consideration, I offer, in honor of this Easter weekend…rabbit songs!

Unfortunately, there aren’t many rabbit songs, although the best has to be Jefferson Airplane’s White Rabbit:

For the last two songs, they only get included for mentioning rabbits in the lyrics.

Next is Pink Floyd’s Breathe, from their Dark Side of the Moon album (which I consider one of the all-time great albums):

Finally, there is Paul McCartney’s Band on the Run:

All in all, rabbits get a bad rep in music: drugs, depression, and crime.

Try not to think about the rabbits as you enjoy your Easter weekend!

  1. Your rabbit subject is a song subject I have no reply to other than White Rabbit is the only song I can think of with Rabbit in it.

  2. Is anyone going to sell in May and go away?

    • No. After a 5% pullback I’m a buyer or well after the market corrects it’s self. Few more weeks should do it.

      Happy Easter to everyone.

  3. How about Elmer Fudd’s over of Ride of the Valkyries…”Kill the Wabbit, Kill the Wabbit” I believe that was my first introduction to classical music.

  4. Pink Floyd mentioned a Rabbit in a song (maybe called “Run”). So, Yes, not a very popular subject. (Dig your hole until it’s done, Turn around it’s time to dig another one).

  5. I know the weekend thread sometimes is a barren place to ask stock question, so I may repost on Monday. I am wondering peoples thoughts on VMI a very boring company but just makes money and grows. Nobody talks about it as it is not social media stock, bio tech ect… Looks like a good stock to put on a watchlist.

    • ojunker,
      VMI is fairly priced for a company that increased revenues 1.6% and their earnings dropped 15% last quarter. They’re safe, but unexciting. If they’d raise their dividend yield from 0.7% they might get some more interest.

  6. Happy Easter to everyone!
