Standard and Poor’s downgraded US sovereign credit after market hours on Friday to AA+ from AAA. But that wasn’t the only rating that changed this weekend:
The Automobile Club of America was upgraded from “AAA” to “AAAA.”
They are happy…but the guy who now has to
redo their brochures, etc. with their new logo is ecstatic.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is now just “A”…
and instead of 12 Steps, now has only 6.
The KKK was downgraded to “KK,” possibly to make it easier for them to spell.
Jimmy “J.J.” Walker is upgraded to “J.J.J.” Walker just because he’s Dyn-O-Mite.
B.B. King has been downgraded to B. King, based on poor sales of his last album.
Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony was upgraded to Beethoven’s Tenth Symphony,
which is sure to confuse the hell out of all classical music lovers.
Lady GaGa has been downgraded to Lady Ga, due to overexposure.
