The Kids in San Francisco Think Ben Bernanke is a Big Fat Zero

This tattoo’ed youth seen in the Civic Center area of San Francisco appears to have had a football jersey custom made in order to criticise Ben Shalom Bernanke, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the United States Federal Reserve and the fourth most powerful person in the world per Newsweek.

Either she thinks he’s a big fat zero, or she’s calling for zero percent interest rates, or something like that.
