Testing Jamie Dimon’s Cougar Knowledge

Jamie and The (Booty) Hunter

Last night at the Robin Hood Foundation’s annual gala, Jimmy Fallon appeared on stage wearing a cowboy hat, and in a Southern accent, sang an original song entitled “Cougar Huntin’.” Apparently it was funny and references to the group of 40+ year old women who seek out younger men to use as their sex toys then became the go-to joke for the rest of the night.

Even JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon, the gala’s co-chair, went with the flow before speaking to the audience about the need to support Robin Hood. “Jimmy Fallon, I know you’re hunting for a cougar, but I’m going home with one tonight — my wife who’s out there somewhere. So good luck in your hunting,” Dimon said.

I don’t think I have to tell you that 9 times out of 10 we wouldn’t even dream of questioning Jamie Dimon’s expertise on anything. But in this one instance, we must ask– when JD called his wife Judy a cougar, did he do so:

a) knowing exactly what a cougar is, i.e. making a “joke” that his leading lady hunts bars looking for younger dudes to bang

b) thinking it just means a 40+ year old hot woman (which you can see, Judy Dimon certainly is), the age of her conquest being irrelevant (J and J met at Harvard Business School and are presumably around-ish the same age)

c) implying that he’s much younger than his wife (I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought to myself, in all seriousness, “James Dimon doesn’t look a day over 30″)

d) you tell us

    @5 of the fact that JD can make a joke like this (could clown face the president, and so on and so forth) and not get shit for it?

    Its “d”.

    The obvious explanation is that JD’s competitor, LB, would not be able to make the same comment/joke without the audience rolling their eyes in disbelief. He was tweaking LB.

    @14 I appreciate you.

    Bess, how much would a night alone with JD be worth to you?

    d) He mistook “cougar” as referring to any aggressive pussy. [Whip crack] Meredith Whitney announces she is long JPM.

    Bess@9: Because JD’s got a cougar in the bedroom at home and LB, golden scrot and all, has got a manatee?

    My wife is really hot but I admit to be curious about seeing Lloyd naked. Is it wrong?

  38. Posted by Lloyd B | May 11, 2010 at 7:46 PM

    Jamie, I’ve had your wife, she’s not so hot. Bess is much hotter. By the way, anytime you really want to see me just call Lucas
