It don't look like a tulip to me. [popbottle, Oct 27 2014]

       Hmm, we are persuaded to sell some of our South Sea Company holdings and buy into this in a big way ... sounds like a real winner. [+].

       I put this roughly between a lastminute.com share and a bitcoin.

       You can probably buy a 10% share in a $1,000,000 tulip ... but on the margin, so it works out cheaper ...

       A home shaped and painted to be a very large tulip ?

       … financed by a sub-prime mortgage bundled into a collectivised debt bond, perhaps ?

       By the way, you don't need to actually physically possess the tulips, safe storage is available for a reasonable monthly fee. Ask about our mutual fund / tulip storage program.   

       Front loaded of course.   

       Our opportunity analysis group is working on the rollout of our "Virtual Tulip" investment program sometime in fiscal '15.

       Presumably there will be a healthy trade in Virtual Tulip Futures ?   

       The ideal investment vehicle for the conservative shareholder … an undefined and unsecured stake in a nonexistent commodity that isn't even nonexistent yet.   

       Wall Street will just love it.

       Hey man, if we get the full faith and backing of the U.S. gubment to guarantee the investments in the unlikely event that the market collapses, boom! We're in business!   

       The worst of capitalism meets the worst of communism! What's not to love?

       //They are gonna raise your taxis.   

       The only two sure things in life, death and taxis..if that's an Egyptian taxi, they are often combined....wonders if there's a market for in-taxi canopic jars, but then realises they have been superseded by organ donor cards...

       If I know anything about history, its that nobody learns from the past. It is not only possible for the tulip boom to repeat itself, but is, also not impossible for the next boom to be bigger than ever before. You can hold me to this.
