David Einhorn: “I Have Quite A Lot To Say”

about all this. For starters:

- “This is as much like insider trading as soccer is like football”
- “The FSA has spent the last two years forcing square pegs into round holes”
- “This is like a traffic cop with a quota at the end of the month, with a miscalibrated radar gun”
- Greenlight has a recording of the call in question, which contains no evidence of insider trading

- Something about this being like televised poker
- “Greenlight has always been committed to the highest standards of professional conduct”
- GL choose to pay the fine rather than go through another year of politically-charged BS
- Thank you and good-night!

    “The FSA has spent the last two years forcing square pegs into round holes”. Sounds like fun!

    Was there a source for that stuff inside the quotation marks?

    This guy, David Einhorn? Runs Greenlight Capital? Currently giving a call we're listening to and mentioned here: http://dealbreaker.com/2012/01/greenlight-capital… ?

    It's hard to talk with a d*ck in your mouth.

    This…this… this is like putting ketchup on pasta and calling in spaghetti marinara

    It's like calling a slice of velveta, cheese.

    It's like insisting your last shot with a "foot wedge" was one stroke.

    And the fine? It's like your friends sister in law came over to use the bathroom and didn't flush.

    Velveeta isn't a dairy product. Apart from that, no problems.

    Not ringing any bells, sorry.

    Bess I think you just fell into Duncan's honey trap of sweet'n'subtle-ish irony.

  10. Posted by Duncan | January 25, 2012 at 4:55 PM

    Nah, she just linked the wrong article up top.
    Matt didn't mention the call.

  11. Posted by guest | January 25, 2012 at 4:55 PM

    uh…no. nice backpedaling on Duncan's behalf though!

  12. Posted by guest | January 25, 2012 at 5:03 PM

    Actually, she didn't and actually Matt did…or did you think"call at 4PM" referred t something else?

    Why don't we ever discuss Mr. Einhorn's hairpiece on this discussion board? Seriously, it's like YouTube's Teddy the Corn Eating Hedgehog fell asleep on top of his head. Seriously, somebody Photoshop that thing off of him, please.

    Hey, shit for brains? 1) She mentioned the call in her original post, which you could find by scrolling down the page. 2) If scrolling is too hard for you, you could also use that thing called logic you never got a handle on and deduce that when the headline is- David Einhorn: "I have quite a lot to say," that the other quotes will also be from, wait for it…David Einhorn.

    It's like the Shawshank Redemption but with more tunneling through shit and no fucking redemption.

    So…Dennis Miller resurfaces as a conference call script ghost writer. I'd recognize his formulaic similie based humor anywhere.

    I'm very impressed by your keyboard testosterone, "guest".
    rawr! what are you, her wannabe boyfriend?

    I didn't ask who said it, I asked if she was quoting some other article.
    Because often, she does. And then she often puts a link to it.

    Seriously, what are you doing here? Seriously.

  19. Posted by Wall St. Dude | January 25, 2012 at 5:22 PM

    It's like Rocky 5…… but… well, it just like Rocky 5.

  20. Posted by guest | January 25, 2012 at 5:23 PM

    Hmm, and, again your logic skills are lacking, since it wasn't that hard to figure out that if she said the call was happening, she would be listening to it and taking her own notes, as she often does.

    STFU, both of you.

    Duncan, are you perhaps a guy who happens to be from Delaware?

    Spot on on this dude as her wannabe BF though. He rants uncontrollably anytime someone give Bess a hard time and then denies that he has ever posted before. His name is always a lowercase "guest" (which I assume will change goingforward).

  28. Posted by Guest | January 26, 2012 at 8:23 AM

    Totally agree. This guy Einhorn uses way too many analogies.
