Bulls, bears, bunnies, & the big house
The SEC just charged an Arizona investment firm, “Radical Bunny LLC” with defrauding investors and guaranteeing “double-digits” returns. The defendants include two accountants, a grade school principal and a pharmacist. (“Pass the Excedrin, please.”) See: http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepublic/news/articles/2009/07/29/20090729secbunny0729.html2.
Back in 1987, Robert Freeman, chief of risk arbitrage at Goldman Sachs, was sentenced to prison for insider trading after a phone call with Martin Siegel, whose friend BunnyLasker leaked news regarding a pending merger. Siegel testified that he told Freeman, ”Your Bunny has a good nose.” See http://www.nytimes.com/1990/04/19/opinion/your-bunny-and-wall-street-justice.html
And this evening Rocky discovered Whoops Bunny, an online retailer which sells “whoops” for an undisclosed amount of money. The website says, “Here at Whoops Bunny, we recycle all our plastic, paper and glass, even driving miles to the glass recycling plant. We’ll even reuse scraps of paper for our scribbles.” For a really annoying bouncing rabbit, click on: http://whoopsbunny.com/index.html
[Disclosure: Rocky already knew he should never play cards with a man named Doc, or eat at a restaurant called Mom’s. Now, he knows, “never do business with a person named Bunny.”]
