Carl Icahn Just Wants To Reiterate That Bill Ackman Wouldn't Want To Find Himself In Certain Parts Of Queens After Dark

Not back in the day, when Icahn was running the Southeastern Queens Chapter of the Jewish Crips and not today, as the elder hedge fund manager presumably maintains ties with the organization, whose members stay current on his various investing nemeses and won't hesitate to fuck someone up.

Not back in the day, when Icahn was running the Southeastern Queens chapter of the Jewish Crips and not today, as the elder hedge fund manager presumably maintains ties with the organization, whose members stay current on his various investing nemeses and won't hesitate to fuck someone up.

Icahn does not even need to be prompted about Ackman. “Ackman would not have lasted long on the streets of Far Rockaway,” Icahn volunteers. “One thing that makes Bill Ackman the opposite of me is that to be a true winner you have to learn to win gracefully. Ackman will never be able to do this.”

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, on the other hand, never has to worry about paying for a drink in the old neighborhood, or having to tip the stickman at the corner craps game.

“We like Reed Hastings," says Icahn. "I told him when a guy makes me 800 million bucks, I don’t punch him in the mouth.”

How Should Bill Ackman And Carl Icahn Settle This Thing Once And For All?

When Mark Hughs founded a multi-level marketing company called Herbalife in 1980, he probably thought it had the power to do a lot of things. Help people lose weight. Makes others rich. Shake up the diet industry. What he mostly likely did not expect, however, was that his li'l company that could would reignite a feud between two billionaires that would devolve into a flurry of press releases quibbling over who was dying to be friends with whom, shouting matches on live TV, and, we predict, someone telling someone else he has a right mind to "Rip the eyes out of your head and piss into your dead skull! You messed with the wrong hedge fund manager!"
