The Wecovery 

"Wecovery" as in weak...

"Wecovery" as in "Whaddaya mean, we?"

"Wecovery" as in "W-style recovery."

Anna Willard of Reuters writes:

WASHINGTON - Americans are finding it unexpectedly tough to hold onto their jobs but other areas of the economy are showing signs of a pickup, two government reports out on Thursday showed.

The number of U.S. workers lining up to claim first-time unemployment benefits showed a surprise increase last week, the Labor Department said, adding to a dismal labor market picture.

"It's surprisingly bad news," said John Lonski, chief economist at Moody's Investors Service.

Anna? John? Some of us weren't surprised...

UPDATE: Alert reader Rob Salkowitz adds "wee-covery," as in, really, really tiny. Yep!
