I’ve been coming across a TON of hilarious, yet true, pics when researching articles for Rockstar Finance, so I thought today I’d do a little less talky, and a little more pictur-y. Minus that last blurb I just did on the new $100 bill coming out ;)
We’ll start with my favorite one, courtesy of Punch Debt in The Face:
And then this next one by The College Investor:
Then another awesome one at The Bluebird Patch:
And lastly, this one I just found randomly on Tumblr:
I think what this little boy is saying is “Get a budget! Don’t throw away your money!” ;)
And that’s it for this chapter of Tuesday #Truth Day… If you’d like another way to waste 5 minutes of your life, check out this list of 54 best animated gifs from 2012 BuzzFeed put together… Nothing to do with finance, but definitely to do with funniness ;)
Stay lazy, my friends!

That first one is the best! Found the original video here:
Haha yes, good find! If only people PAID ATTENTION to it too ;)
LOVE the one of the kid throwing the money out the window. That was us for years, which kind of makes me laugh, and kind of makes me really PO’d. :-)
At least you’re now out of that habit! Sometimes people never figure it out :(
What simple and obvious recommendations that very few people have the fortitude to follow. I can handle staying lazy and piling up the retirement cash!
That’s the one that really hit home with me the most actually. I sometimes forget how *powerful* it is to invest and then walk away and let it do its thing. One of these days I really need to go back and move all my investments around so they’re set up for a more passive investing strategy…
Bahaha how could you get mad at the little one throwing money out the window? She is just sooo cute!
Lol, I LOVE that first one. So simple, yet dead on right. And investing…definitely something I am cool being lazy with.
Haha I love all of these!
LOL. These are pretty freaking great! ;)
These are fantastic. Blogger question: What are the legalities of reposting these kinds of viral images on the blog? Are they in the public domain?
An excellent question indeed, Stefanie :) From everything I’ve read, it seems a lot of these are incredibly hard to track back and thus the best you can do is link to the source you found them on (or just not post them up at all). Especially with those animated gifs that catch fire and then get spread a million times a day. I tend to stray away from posting a lot of these up just cuz it’s such a gray area, but every now and then (like today) I give in and do my best to link appropriately :) I would love an absolute answer on this though, so if you ever come across one please let me know!
I will never understand why people buy things they can’t afford… now I must return to washing my Ferrari!
These are great! I am a total lazy investor and invest solely in index funds and mutual funds but they have done well in recent years. Clearly the most interesting man in the world would beat me down for it, then hopefully buy me a beer and set me straight.
Maybe that’s how the most interesting man in the world got to be the most interesting man in the world? The freedom all that index investing gave him allowed him to go out and spend his time learning how to be so damn sexy! Errrr… Interesting!
Lawl. I love the last one, I could definitely see my kid doing this…..you know….with our stacks of cash laying around…
And that boy later became known as the first person to “make it rain”. I have to say my favorite is the 2nd one. It’s helpful and humorous.
Please tell me you (or anyone!) recognizes the baby video as Spanky from The Little Rascals! It is an early one, but still!
HAH! Nope! Man I haven’t thought about that movie in a while… Nice work, though :)
There’s nothing better than a kid throwing money out the window. Love it!
Went to an Indian buffet for lunch….and been lazy ever since:P Haha nothing like stuffing myself and then lounging round. I hope my future kids don’t learn to do what that kid is doing!
The little kid throwing money out the window is amazing! Nice find.
haha first one, so true!
Haha love the little kid throwing money out the window. Probably at a group of peasants below.
Or a financial blogger like us down there salivating as the bills fall into our pockets! :)
first and last! The first one is so spot on and that baby is adorable!
That pic re: index investing got me thinking. If J$ agrees with the idea of index funds being “lazy investing”, what does J$ have in his portfolio??? I’ve always thought of index funds as a pretty solid choice when it comes to investing, but perhaps you could shed a little light on the situation.
Cheers, good sir!
Oh man, you don’t want to look inside my portfolio – it’s all over the place :) I’ve got handfuls of index funds in one area, and then individual stocks in the other (for when I’m feeling risky and more playful). Then of course all kinds of mutual funds interspersed throughout. I’m one of those people who believe in all kids of theories with investing, but what I *really* need to do one of these days is just take a look at them all and condense and make sure everything’s lined up exactly how I want it/it should be. It just bores the pants off me so I keep things the way they are (and I really can’t complain w/ the results too, since I’ve skewed aggressive with most things over the years).
Whenever I get to that I’ll be sure to post about it :)
