Meanwhile, In The Hamptons (Update)

An egg salad recipe worth an estimated $4,000 has gone missing and every summer-sharing junior banker sleeping three to a bed, VP looking to transition from Wall Street to the culinary arts, and senior executive who’s spent years attempting to find the secret ingredient is a suspect.

    Okay team, what we're looking for is:
    -someone with a place in the hamptons
    -time on their hands
    -an insatiable appetite
    -a documented love of cooking shows

    seems like all points lead to SC.

    Either it's a huge coincidence that the guy's name means "Egg Salad" in German, or this is a prank.

    - Not a Deutschebanker, but I play one on TV.

    I'm too busy trying to bag all the desperate 40 somethings out there so you know I'm not interested in fresh eggs if you catch my drift. Other than that pass the salt and pepper bitches

    I read this as "too busy trying to ball gag all these desperate 40 somethings out there"

    …still works.

    I finished the valuation crunch for the egg salad, sir. We've got a low end coming in at only $4,000 but the curve immediately pushes up to infinity. As the graph clearly shows that it is priceless, I suggest that we issue a 'hold' recommendation on the next investor note.

    What's Martha Stewart's alibi?

    Or, he's using this planted 'theft' to weasel his way to an appearance on her show.
