Presumably the new scruff is being sported simply in an effort to stay warm in Switzerland but dare we say it should become a permanent thing? As you can see here it does nothing to obscure The Lloyd Face and in fact enriches it somehow?
The Lloyd Face
A couple weeks ago, we brought to your attention Lloyd Blankfein’s face. It’d been on display at the Financial Crisis Inquiry, in all it’s whatchu talkin about Willis/you people are idiots/I could kill you and nobody would know about it glory. The stink eye, the scrunched face, glaring like nobody’s business at anyone who happened to be speaking or thinking things at the time. It was so ravishing, so utterly mesmerizing that we suggested that Goldman institute the Lloyd Cam so that we might enjoy that mug any time we pleased. It’s under consideration. In the meantime, it appears that come June, we’re going to have the opportunity to soak up twice the love/hate. At left, Jonathan Blankfein, son of LB, Harvard Class of 2010 and incoming Goldman analyst. He doesn’t do it exactly like dad but everybody needs to put their own special take on things. He’s already got a Bloomberg account so take a peak and make him the most viewed today!
As previously mentioned, one of the greatest things that went down at yesterday’s Financial Crisis Inquiry was the aggressive and plentiful display of Lloyd Blankfein’s mug. The stink eye, the scrunched face, it was all spectacular. Whether it was waiting for Bill Thomas to finish his magnum opus on email, preparing to cut a bitch, or looking at the guy at the other end of the table, knowing he wasn’t Ken Lewis but still having difficulty placing him, there it was. I don’t know if this is an intimidation tactic, if he needs to have his eyes checked, or if it’s involuntary, I just know we want, nay, need more of it in our lives, and would offer that Goldman would be wise to at least just consider introducing the Lloyd Cam, so we could have a live feed of this thing at all times. For now, we have this:
