Oh didja now big boy? So you’re saying you were happy to leave after they fired you in February 2008, for failing to make it rain like you used to? You didn’t shout “sexist pigs!” as you were escorted from the building? You didn’t even think it? While you marinade on that, let me just say this: it doesn’t matter. What matters is that the Maestro of the Whiteboard Marker is speaking. Finally, we can point a voice to the phrase “you’re going to have to give me a blow job if you want to make that trade.” While this clip doesn’t touch on Mr. J’s “trading philosophy” but as it seems like he’s actively getting out there and making the rounds in an effort to promote his new fund and raise a little capital, a gripping first person account can’t be too far behind. (Perhaps as part of some sort of Sex and the City-like bus tour, for those ponying up 100 million or more? Just a suggestion.) Also, while the interviewer seemingly avoids bringing up the issue we’d all like to discuss, please note the placement of the marker just over PJ’s shoulder. That was no accident. Well-played, ladies.

Lehman Brothers likes to say it is “building vision.” We decided to give them a hand and design an advertising campaign for them.
Earlier: “Citi Never Sleeps” ad campaign.
When we learned this morning that Citi CEO Vikram Pandit had announced at 5:03 this morning that the financial giant was adopting “Citi Never Sleeps” as its new company motto, we immediately began anticipating the new advertising campaign that Citi will doubtlessly unveil.
And then we decided we couldn’t wait for Citi. Pandit’s got a lot on his mind, and the bank is strapped for capital. Why not devise an advertisement for the bank? You know, just to help out. Of course, we may understand the concept of eternal insomnia slightly different from Citi, which imagines that ‘Citi Never Sleeps’ conveys the image of a bank with “boundless energy to serve customers.”
Our Citi ad after the jump.
For those of you already bored with watching
JP Morgan’s Fed chief Ben Bernanke talk to Congressmen, we thought we’d present a little entertainment. Thanks to the boys at OptionMonster, we have a mash-up of Bohemian Rhapsody and recent crises on Wall Street. It’s the Bohemian Financial Rhapsody. After the jump, we bring the glory.
This terrible video just about proves that business school makes comedy impossible.
Buy low, sell high, of course. Sadly, this “Schoolhouse Rock” lesson comes too late for owners of Bear Stearns. (via Mises.org)
Just something to pass the time while everyone waits for the Fed announcement.
