AIG To Change Name To ARGH

AIG Angst

Breaking Business: The board of AIG have announced they are to change the company's name to ARGH.

We understand that the board had debated whether to put an exclamation mark at the end of ARGH to make the company name ARGH!, but decided against it after reference to a focus group.

A spokesman for the board apparently told out reporter:

"It was felt that ARGH! gave the wrong impression. Our focus group told us that an exclamation point at the end of ARGH indicates a haphazardness, a randomness if you want, to the group which we do not want to promote going forward. It was felt that nobody would want to invest in a company called ARGH!

However, ARGH without the exclamation point encapsulated more fully what the company today and going forward now is, and our prospects for the future.

The future is looking great, the future is now ARGH."

A new advertising campaign under the slogan "The future is looking ARGH" is set to begin mid April and run until June, or until the money runs out whichever happens first.


Correction: In an earlier report we erroneously reported that the Federal Reserve had injected "$7 Gazillionbabillion" into AIG. We are happy to clarify that nobody actually knows how much has been injected.
