Prohibition-Era Hunting Trip

This is the blurb right below the QE3 headline on Yahoo! Finance:

“He came out with literally his Tommy gun and he slaughtered all the bears,” says Brian Sozzi, chief equities analyst of NBG Productions of Ben Bernanke’s stunningly aggressive monetary actions. 

I didn’t go to to fancy-pants journalism school, Justin, but I assume the Yahoo! staff person responsible for that blurb knew full well how fantastically poor Brian was misusing ‘literally.’  I really enjoyed the image conjured up as a result, so I applaud the nameless staff person for seizing the moment.  I just hope they weren’t endangered bears.
