Market Tanks, We’re All Eating ‘Satan Sandwiches’

The markets have closed down sharply (the Dow by more than 500 points) due to fears about the global economy and a double-dip recession here in the U.S.

TIME says “Wall Street hates the debt deal,” but others have expressed their dislike of it as well. After Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) called it a “Satan sandwich,” our colleagues over at FishbowlNY asked a few people what would be on their personal “Satan sandwich.”

Qorvis’ partner and former TWT editor Sam Dealey said his recipe would be “[NRSC Spokesman] Brian Walsh’s dog Rudy, American cheese product, and a side of Freedom Fries. Pretty much what I was served on my United Airlines flight today from San Antonio.”

Publicist Janet Donovan replied, “A Big Mac smothered in raw onions.”

Ours: A Jim Gaffigan-style Hot Pocket — nasty meat dipped in toilet water.

Ugh. At least we can laugh.
