If You Work At JPMorgan And Are Thinking About Losing A Few Billion, Take Note

“And I want you to know the London Whale issue is dead,” Jamie Dimon recently told a bunch of school children. “The Whale has been harpooned. Dessicated. Cremated…I am going to bury its ashes all over.” [NYM]

      Whoa, whoa, whoa. There's still plenty of meat on that bone. Now you take this home, throw it in a pot, add some broth, a potato. Baby, you've got a stew going.

      I hope Jamie realises that any dead whales which wash up on British sovereign shores belong to one, so hands off!

    Jamie, you should have taken them to The Far Corners of the Earth.
    Other than that, I have no concerns.

    He then continued, "I'll kill a snitch. Not saying I have. Not saying I haven't…Whatever, you kids don't know shit."

    And by "Harpooned. Dessicated. Cremated," I mean, "allowed to resign quietly with a nice severance package and a good reference."

      And by "a bunch of school children," I mean, "the House Financial Services Committee."

    So I'm reading the article, and I'm wondering, what kind of school children would kow or care about the London whate, and I see that "school children = JPM summer interns"

    And now I see this whole thing is merely Bess's way of commenting on JP Morgan's hiring policies.

    Well played Bess.

    "And I want you to know the London Whale issue is dead"

    Forgive me for not taking his word for it. Remember this is the guy who said this issue was "a tempest in a teapot" before it blew up.
