Would you believe us (Charlie Gasparino) if we (he) told you that John Thain:
- Had a letter addressed to him from floor trader Kevin M. Flanders that said “Thank U [sic] John Thain for ruining all of our careers?”
- Knows he isn’t well-liked by the trading community
- Once ate a panda
- Was accompanied by a security detail on a recent visit to the floor
- Just wants to dance
- Is “openly mocked for his stiffness”
- “Makes Al Gore look animated”
- Is allergic to bees
- Often finds that his attempts at humor fall flat because, “given his rigid demeanor, traders simply can’t tell whether he’s kidding” or not
- Has a 22" cock
