TSF Is Back

Wall Street is set to cut over 100,000 financial services employees by the end of the year. The Dow dropped 521 points today. Harbinger Capital Partners muse Wilbur Falcone was just dealt a horrible blow. While some of you may think we get off on writing about Wall Street getting its teeth knocked out, in truth, it’s really just as much a buzz kill for us as it is for those taking it up the tailpipe. So we’ve decided to do something about it, in an admittedly self-serving effort to cheer ourselves up (it’s strange, but making you feel good makes us feel good). And here’s what it is: WE’RE BRINGING BACK THE SANDWICH FAIRY.
For those of you who need a refresher, TSF was introduced decades ago (actual time: April ’08), after a hero named Oyster Boy successfully downed 244 oysters in one hour at Ulysses (we started by sending OB a congratulatory cheesesteak from Delmonico’s and from there it escalated into sending lunch to any old financial services hack each week). After a good run (and the sandwich welfare program fell by the wayside) we put it into retirement.

But now feels like as good at time as ever as to bring that shit back. Know someone who you think deserves a visit from The Sandwich Fairy? Send your nominations to tips at dealbreaker dot com. We’ll start tomorrow and do this weekly through Labor Day, perhaps through the year if your play your cards right. (Please be advised that TSF will come bearing food from whatever establishment you’d like so long as it delivers and accepts American Express. For the neophytes among us, do us all a favor and review TSF Guidelines.)

    lights on, rails of pixie dust snorted through her wand, bent over the footboard, Carmen Diaz dressed as Peter Pan giving a good ol' fashion to Captain Hook in the corner.

    with what?

    I'm assuming this was a reference to Hook, in which case you should know that Tinkerbell was played by Julia Roberts, not Cameron Diaz. Other than that I have no concerns.

    Wait, are you still giving Champale and Penthouses with the sandwiches, too?

    I nominate the chick who got jizzed in the water bottle. And the JPM model intern.

    Do financial service hacks "working" in Montauk for the month qualify?

  20. Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 at 8:54 PM

    Bob Kelly (CEO of BNY Mellon) or Gerald Hassell (President of BNY Mellon)… they probably can’t afford lunch since they’ve taken to charging for deposits (+ all those layoffs).

    While we're digging into the DB archives, I really could stand for Muffy to make a return appearance.

    When will the anal fairy be back?

    I order the club sandwich all the time, but I'm not even a member, man. I don't know how I get away with it.

    So did I.
