You are right. That was a bad choice of words. What I wanted to say was ripping off the old institutional european money...which isn't even correct considering that much of that was not Anglo-Saxon.

I do apologize for that. It's wrong and prejudiced. I'll leave it up there though with this comment string to show what a jackass I am.

offended WASP

..."Ripping off honest, hard working people that considered you their friend and benefactor had to become old-hat at least twenty years ago. Fleecing the WASPs was probably becoming boring too."

What is this supposed to mean? that WASPs aren't part of the 'honest, hard working' group??

your blog is usually very solid. i think you owe an explanation or apology on this one.

You're a mean one, Bernie the Grinch
You really know how to "filch" and steel,
You're a cuddly Ponzi scheming cactus, you're a charming Wall Street "khazer", Bernie the Grinch,
You're a big Palm Beach banana with a greasy black peel!

You're an asset management "loch in kop", Bernie the Grinch
Your business is a "gelt" black hole almost as big as AIG,
Your brain is full of "ferkakdeh" trades, you have garlic in your "fershtinkiner" soul, Bernie the Grinch,
Investors shouldn't have touched you with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole!

You're a foul one, Bernie the Grinch,
You say the dog ate your "bupkes" records,
You have all the tender sincerity of a typical "filching" Wall Street "shnorrer", Bernie the Grinch,
Given a choice between the two of you I'd sooner drink bottled water from the East River!

You're a rotten "s--hmuck", Bernie the Grinch,
You're the king of hedge fund scamster "dreck",
Your heart's a rotten "gefilte" splotched with moldy purple spots, Bernie the Grinch,
You're a triple decker synthetic CDO and CDS toadstool sandwich with arsenic Wall Street bailout sauce on top!

You nauseate me, Bernie the Grinch,
You're a nauseous super Wall Street "momzer!",
You're a crooked Alpha "schlockster" and you run a crooked "shandhoiz", Bernie the Grinch,
Your trading books are an appalling dung heap overflowing with the most disgraceful
assortment of "chazere" rubbish imaginable mangled up in tangled "kishka" knots!

You're a foul one, Bernie the Grinch,
You're a nasty wasty Wall Street "goniff",
Your heart is an unwashed "shmanta", your soul is full of bogus "schmaltz", Bernie the Grinch,
The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote,
"Shtunk, shtup, shlemiel"!

Bernard Madoff
"Tsen shifn mit gold zol er farmorgn, un dos gantse gelt zol er farkrenkn."
Ten ships of gold should be his and the money should only make him sick.


(Pinball Wizard, the Who)

Ever since I was a young boy
I've played the Ponzi game
From Wall Street down to Palm Beach
Those suckers are all the same
But I ain't seen nothing like him
In any financial services mega mall
That soft spoken Park Avenue yid
Sure makes a mean PONZI CALL

He stands straight like a mensch
Becomes part of the asset management machine
Sucking all the country club believers
Always playing a devious scheme
He cons European banking institutions
Their diligence brains are small
That low down rotten mamzer Madoff
Sure makes a mean PONZI CALL

He's a PONZI CALLIN wizard
There's got to be a twist
He's got such a waiting list

How do you think he does it?
(I don't know)
What makes him so good?

He ain't got no distractions
Can't hear those opening buzzers and bells
Don't see SEC red lights a flashin'
Plays by sense of yutz smell
Always gets them to prepay
Never wilts at all
That low down Park Avenue gonif Madoff
Sure makes a mean PONZI CALL

I thought I was
The PONZI Scheme king
But I just handed
My PONZI crown to him

Even on my boiler room floor
He can beat my best
His shnook disciples follow him in
And he just does the rest
He's got a crazy trader schpiel
Never seen him stall
That low down scamin gonif Madoff
Sure makes a mean PONZI CALL


WASP's? Maybe a few.
Sounds like a buncha jews took it on the chin.
