Former MF Global employees in Chicago recently had the chance to vent their frustration against Jon Corzine — by smacking him with a small wooden bat. At a post-Christmas party Dec. 29, former employees took turns smashing a star-shaped pinata with pictures of Corzine taped on it, according to people who attended the party. Unfortunately, those looking for the missing $1.2 billion in customer funds came up empty-handed: When the pinata broke open, all it contained was slips of paper with “IOU” written on them. A spokesperson for MF Global said the firm had no knowledge of this event. [FINS]

    That's as good as money sir, those are IOUs. Go ahead and add it up. Every cent's accounted for. Look, see this? That's a car. 275 thou – might want to hang on to that one.

    Subject; Graciousness and Professionalism

    All-

    It is with great dissapointment that we have discovered that an employee held party over the Christmas Season involved a pinata lampooning outgoing CEO Jon Corzine. Here at MF, we pride ourselves on innovative value added solutions and this simply does not meet our high standards of satire. Please respond to this email with your suggestion as to how the firm may better humiliate Mr. Corzine.
