Objective – Make Artie Short Sell ZiffCorp Stock Count at Java Server (24hrs)

Carl: ZiffCorp was ranked the number one stock to buy in 2014 by Hickory Dickory Stock, the magazine for child economists.
Carl: If it's good enough for America's youth, then it's good enough for me.
Lenny: It's logic like that that makes me feel better about investing so much in a company I know so little about.
Carl: And here's another article on ZiffCorp in Ferdinand the Bull Market, the magazine for child bankers.
Carl: Huh. Turns out ZiffCorp's borrowing our shares, short-selling them, and then repurchasing and returning them to us at a later date.
Lenny: That seems a little shady and not to our benefit. Should we be worried?
Carl: My financial advisor says there is nothing to be worried about. We'll be millionaires by nap time.

Artie: ZiffCorp is filing for bankruptcy.
Carl: What about the articles in Mother Goose's ‘Lullabye and Sell' about ZiffCorp's massive profits? Was that all just a fantasy?
Artie: No, not a fantasy.
Artie: A lie! That was a lie!
Artie: I think it's technically called investor fraud.
Lenny: But what about us?
Artie: You will lose all your investments.
Artie: But don't worry, there's a silver lining...
Lenny: Oh good, cause that all sounded really bad. What is it?
Artie: You didn't let me finish. A silver lining on my new tennis court.
Artie: Not quite regulation, but I love the way my ruby-crusted tennis balls clang off it.

Marge: Artie, you are absolutely the most unethical, sleazy example of a human being I have ever come across!

Artie: Now will you marry me, Marge?
Marge: You just don't get it. I don't want to be with you, or even around you. Go home Artie.

Judge Snyder: I don't know if there's a white collar crime you haven't committed, Mr. Ziff.

Judge Snyder: Mr. Ziff, these are very serious accusations!
Judge Snyder: A lot of people, including myself, have been financially crippled because of you! You've ruined lives!
Artie: I don't suppose this ‘Get Out of Jail Free' card I have in my wallet is game transferrable?
Judge Snyder: Jail? I don't think that's necessary. It's not like you shoplifted or were found with a minuscule amount of drugs.
Judge Snyder: House arrest will do. And if you don't have a house, the court will appoint one for you.
Judge Snyder: As for your failing business that ruined the community, its market cap just qualifies as too big to fail.
Judge Snyder: I hereby order the town to bail out ZiffCorp and build it a fancy office building.
Judge Snyder: Case dismissed!

-After Objective Completion-

Lenny: So ZiffCorp is back and will be publicly traded.
Lenny: But I'll never be fooled by a man in a fancy suit again.
Lenny: Hey! Nice suit, Carl, so are you thinking of buying back in?
Carl: Are you crazy? I lost over three hundred thousand dollars!
Lenny: Then I'm buying back in!
Carl: What?! Why?
Lenny: I said I wasn't going to listen to a man in a suit and you're a man in a suit.

Artie: How crude!
