Grim and Ghastly Pun

Alright, "Epigram for Wall Street," just cracked me up. It used the sort of puns that are SO terrible that you groan a bit, before uncontrollably giggling. They're so bad they're good. It makes it even funnier when you reconsider that the poem comes from the master of horror and mystery: Edgar Alan Poe. 

The poem is about folding up your money rather than investing it so that you will see it "in creases." It also uses some other double meanings like, well "double." As it is doubled each time you fold it.

It's just interesting to see Poe show his wit with humor, rather than horror or mystery.
