I'd Like my Check Please, Wall Street Journal

Yesterday I wrote a post likening the Orange Juice market on Monday to the climactic scene in trading places. Today, the Wall Street Journal ran a piece doing exactly the same thing. They even start the article off with this solid tidbit:
Orange juice futures trader Dominick Minervini spent years fending off comparisons to Dan Aykroyd in "Trading Places," the 1983 movie that thrust the tiny market into the public consciousness.
"If I said I trade orange juice, everybody would say, 'Oh, it's just like the movie,' " said Mr. Minervini, who has been trading for more than two decades.
So how about it Wall Street Journal, do I get a royalty check now?
