Meet John Dowd. Banker. Founding Father.

Apparently John's wig was at the cleaners. Anyway, according to the headline (click image), The Bank of New York's Mr. Dowd represents 222 years of collective wisdom. To test that wisdom, just give him a call—his number's next to his name. Ask him if he's anti-democracy, like his good buddy Republican party idol Alex Hamilton. Ask him how come he ain't wearing no knickers. If he insults you, challenge him to a duel on the banks of the Hudson.

He’s a tall one he is. Either that or our founding fathers were 4' 9".

Still considerably taller than these guys.

What a douchebag; and I don't use that term lightly (much).

Argh!! He just posted his number because he wanted to brag that he still had an elusive 212 area code! Okay, that is something to be proud of.

I noticed the height thing, too!

Unless the guy's a pinhead, I think Mr. Dowd's image was digitally elongated to make him appear taller. And you know whose idea that would have been.

What is collective wisdom? And why did a banking organization (who really ought to know better) write "two hundred AND twenty two"?

Has anyone called that number? I both googled it and did reverse look up and nada.

I'm going to call 212-AND-408-AND-4278.

well if u do use Skype. It be many free until start of new year. (Chinese I believe.) Of course maybe you in the New City of York and not needing to be free calling for distance.

I in Boise so I so be needing free calling. You have much better in the York than we. You have the many writer jobs that I love to have but cannot. Many times they have discrimination for me at ad agncy. But until is passed the law not discriminate against mens with six balls hanging what can I do?

You in York probably have the bester hookers than we have in Idaho too. Mostly they Idaho hookers missing front toothes, roll cigarette packages in sleeves and go by nicknames Billy or Sammie or Bert.

I like to be ad worker. You know of job for Sher-bert he setting you up with A number one hooker in Idaho.
