Subject: Possible Sighting of Mountain Lion

All:

This morning the Harrison Police Department forwarded a press release, issued by the State of Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, concerning possible sightings of a mountain lion in the nearby King Street area of Greenwich, CT.

The Connecticut DEP recommends that “anyone that sees this animal should not approach it and immediately call the local police and the DEP 24-hour Emergency Phone Line at 860-3423-3333.” Employees are asked to contact the 2000W Security Console at 914 225-1111 in the unlikely event of a sighting on Campus.

Prudence would dictate that employees that need to go outside should remain close to the building, and avoid walking or jogging in remote areas of the Campus until this issue is resolved.

    Are they sure it’s not Lynn Tilton?

    The only way a mountain lion is in these parts is if it escaped from the Michael Steinhardt zoo.

    There is a lot of Cougars in that area as well.  What number do I call if I spot one of them?

    Another good reason for firms to move back to NYC: the only cougars here are at the Gansevoort.

     Do you want to come in its mouth and find out?

    Who is this Prudence and how come she gets to dictate what MS employees do or don’t do?

    I bet the mountain lion is a pussy.  He probably wouldn’t even meet me at Minetta’s.

    There are no mountain lions or hyenas in Connecticut.

    Maybe one of them escaped from the Circus at UBS, fucking Stamford bleeding like a cancerous growth down the New Haven line.

    “Employees that need to go outside . . .”

    Curious about the troglophilic employees that never need to go outside.  Don’t they have to venture out in search of foodstuffs at some point? 

  16. Posted by CDNGuest | June 9, 2011 at 3:56 PM

    We put bells on the kids when they go for walks outside to scare the bears away. Maybe MS employees should wear bear bells.

    Not to worry, we have released over 100,000 wild lions across the country as part of our marketing strategy for the launch of our phenomenal new OS X LION operating system. We believe with every attack and mauling it will reinforce our superiority in the personal computing space. Compensation will be paid to victims as follows:

    Mauling of Child (no death) – One 32G iTouch
    Mauling of Child (w/ death) – One iPad II w/ Airport Express
    Mauling of Adult under 50 –  One Apple TV
    Mauling of Adult over 50 – 2G iPod shuffle (family’s choice of color- earbuds not included)

    State Department of Environmental Protection officials investigating sightings of a large cat in backcountry Greenwich say it appears the animal is a mountain lion that may have been released or escaped from a local handler

    Besides my big thick club I have a dense beard, low forehead, keen sense of smell, simple leopard print wardrobe to cover hairy back, Beamers loyalty card (almost completely punched), pre-owned Civic, cave with view of Jersey wastes through trees of Riverside Park (share with Mole People)  . . . the usual accoutrement (there’s a reason we’re pretty much extinct).

    Thanks for this, I always thought it was a good idea to approach a mountain lion but now I know better.

  41. Posted by Andre | June 9, 2011 at 5:59 PM

    Yes, prudence would dictate that employees stay near the building.  But these folks are bankers.  “Prudence” isn’t in their vocabulary.  Chasing down that lion and wrestling it to the ground is the first thought that comes to mind.  Hell, if I was a MD, I’d offer my job to the first person who killed that lion with his bare hands.

    Jimmy G,
    I work security, my job sucks, these people suck, this FIRM sucks. I was just passing on info from DEP. Blame the government for hiring these idiots that use poor grammar, this was strictly a cut and paste job on my part. Why do you have to steal my thunder? I’m actually “trending” on Yahoo right now. Suck my Anthony Weiner!
