According to Jordan Belfort, a former boiler room operator who did 2.5 years for defrauding all of his Stratton Oakmont clients, 2014 is going to be a big year for convicted criminals who don'tappreciate being called convicted criminals.

Jordan Belfort, whose memoir “The Wolf of Wall Street” was turned into a film by Martin Scorsese, expects to earn more this year than he made at his peak as a stockbroker, allowing him to repay the victims of his fraud. “I’ll make this year more than I ever made in my best year as a broker,” Belfort told a conference in Dubai today. “My goal is to make north of $100 million so I am paying back everyone this year.”

In other unintentionally hilarious news, Belfort thinks "everyone in Australia should boycott 60 Minutes because it's a worthless show" and/or because they were mean to him.
