6409: Monster Losses.
Cutting remarks in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Japan’s Panasonic announced plans to cut 15,000 jobs. Damn, that total exceeds the number of casualties inflicted by Mothra, Ghidra and Godzilla combined.
• Burger King reported 2Q profits fell, and its advertising agency, CP+B, announced it laid off 60 staffers. Guess the Whopper Virgins weren’t impressed enough to spike sales.
• Mastercard reported 4Q profits declined 21 percent. Priceless.
