Baja Mining (BAJ.to): Should be funny, isn’t

Quote of the day goes to my friend W with, “…if this kind of shit happened in the US, someone would be getting a Wells notice from the SEC like yesterday.
The issue is the Baja Mining (BAJ.to) news release out today, so click on it and have a good laugh at the dumbasses, too. Unless you’re long this stock, in which case laughs will be harder to come by. Here at IKN Nerve Centre™ your humble scribe is still trying to work out the funniest bit. It might be the three directors resigning or it might be the $246m in extra costs on top of the previous cost overrun projections. But overall, it’s probably the total brass neck of Greenslade considering the fun ride we’ve seen in this stock in 2012.

UPDATE at the open:

And to that our old pal Owly says…

Thank you, owly.

UPDATE 2: An extra layer of fun comes after the closing bell today in this NR. Here’s the script:
