Think Warren Buffett really gave downtrodden hedge funds the business last weekend? Well, just wait until your hear the Journal’s Oracle-inspired Spencer Jakab take his cuts on yesterday’s Heard on the Street podcast.

The highlights include a discussion of Buffett’s will, the unsustaining properties of relative returns, the comparative investment abilities of simians to highly-paid hedge fund managers, and whether the “scales are falling from people’s eyes” vis-à-vis hedge funds. Suffice it to say that Jakab should be on guard for paunchy men in Spandex lurking in the shadows this weekend.
