Editor's note: Stanley Bing is bringing his famous brand of wit and irreverent humor to TheStreet.com. In addition to twice-weekly columns, you can catch Bing in occasional videos on TheStreet.com.I bet he is. We're all shocked. But the fact that he is shocked is perhaps the most shocking thing of all. "I made a mistake in presuming that the self-interests of organizations ... were such as that they were best capable of protecting their own shareholders and their equity," he said while being grilled by legislators who were shocked, shocked I tell you, that an unregulated financial marketplace would eventually be destroyed by their inattentiveness and its own inherent greed, stupidity and short-term thinking. If anybody were doing their jobs around here, we'd be in much better shape and a whole lot of people would be much less shocked. You know what? We pay a lot of people in this world to know what's going on, so that even if we are shocked when stuff happens, they are not. We call them professionals. Being unshocked is part of what they are supposed to be doing. Like when we go to the same dentist for 10 years, we don't expect the guy to be shocked, shocked! ... when we require braces to fix our bite. He was supposed to see it coming, am I right? I mean, that's why he's the dentist and we are not. When we hire a guy to build us a house, we don't expect the house to fall down. And when it does, we certainly don't believe he's going to show up and be shocked, shocked! ... that the foundation was built on sand. He built it, didn't he?
