A Questionable Answer Choice

When I'm making a quiz or exam, the most challenging part for me is coming up with incorrect answer choices. I suppose coming up with one or two wrong choices is easy enough: work through the problem and make a simple mistake. It's coming up with that fourth answer choice that is incredible difficult and I have to admit I spend a little too much time thinking about it. Sometimes I just run out of ideas and put something incredibly stupid.  

Students in my Personal Wealth Management course recently took a quiz covering stocks. I stared at the response below for a solid five minutes before laughing my ass off.

Exhibit A: What would CNBC's Jim Cramer say?
In retrospect, I shouldn't have marked this incorrect given the causes of the ongoing financial crisis. Extra credit to you sir!
