In chronicling the ‘unholy alliance among Big Business, Big Banking, and Big Government,’ which has brought this country to its knees, a sober voice is required to uncover and distill the backdoor deals, the smoke and mirrors, and the ultimate tragedy found within. That voice belongs to Charlie Gasparino. Which is why it is with great pleasure that we inform you that, due to the runaway success of When Mooks Fail, the Oracle of Rego Park has scored his latest book deal (with an advance that is said to be ‘significant,’ i.e. it’ll cover i.e. it will more than cover several week’s worth of martinis at Tropix, the author’s favorite little neighborhood joint, where they have a lax policy on underage drinking). Gasparino’s upcoming contribution to literature and understanding was sold under the name Bought And Paid For, but we have it on good authority that’s just a working title. That’s where you come in. Chaz has requested we help come up with something better, that truly captures the sentiment of the tome. Early proposals:
* Dis Tim Geithner Guy’s Got His Head Up His Ass
* Suckin’ On Wall Street’s Dick: When Mooks Fail, Part Deux
* Lloyd Blankfein: I’m da boss, I’m da boss, I’m da boss, I’m da boss, I’m da boss… I’m da boss, I’m da boss, I’m da boss, I’m da boss, I’m da boss, I’m da boss
Your help in this endeavor will not go unappreciated. The creator of the winning title will be invited to the premier of the HBO series, Find Me A Stage For This Bull To Rage, which follows Gasparino during the research and writing process of the book. The following is a clip from the opening episode, in which Chaz is confronted by Alan Greenspan, who heard the reporter was sticking his nose where it didn’t belong.
