Completely Psychotic Money by MrVorhias Completely Psychotic Money by MrVorhias
A little caricature thing I made.

Chances are, unless you watch business channels/are an insufferable yuppie, you haven't heard of Jim Cramer. Jim Cramer has a show on CNBC called Mad Money, which is pretty much a stock advice show, that highlights the interesting gimmick of Jim Cramer never taking his "Calm-the-fuck-down" pills.

Pretty much on every show he appears on Jim Cramer is completely wired and crazy, regularly getting into shouting matches over trivial things. (Once he got into a shouting match with Conan O'Brien over the Olive Garden, who later had to calm him down with a bullhorn.)

He got into some hot water recently ([link]) over some bad advice he gave to people watching his show, which pretty much inspired this caricature.

I am loathe to imagine just what caliber of people is the target market for Mad Money. (A show about financial advice delivered by Yosemite Sam, except unarmed, and even more shouty.)

I don't agree with your assessment of his character, but it is a pretty kickass picture.

I like Mad Money. The sounds effects are the best part of the show. I like the lightning round the best.

lol
great picture.
you should send that to him.
on the bear sterns issue, how the hell did people misunderstand what he said. the guy was emailing him about if his money in the account held at bear sterns was in trouble. it was not a question about the stock, which if anyone still owned it probably came close to committing suicide.
oh well.
i still think you should send the picture to him.

Don't you know that people need to buy things in order to confirm their existence?

Yeah, but he's not a product pitchman. He offers stock advice, which is less tangible, and probably less...eh.....want-to-buy-ey-ish-ness.

The Daily Show had a good burn against him too.

His target audience may be "anyone that's willing to listen to him." Not necessarily open-minded folk but perhaps gullible.
