The headline is the first part of an old 19th century English saying. The other part is… “It’s the poor wot gets the blame.” It’s as true today, as it was then. I laughed like a fucking drain when I read yesterday that after writing a personal check for $616 million to pay a fine for insider trading accusations, hedge fund billionaire, Steven A. Cohen, then went out and bought a Picasso for $155 million. The picture in question “La Reve” is the one previous owner, Steve Wynn, put his elbow through while pissed (Just guessing) Fuck, can you imagine what it would be worth if it didn’t have a hole in it? (Yeah, I know, they’ve fixed it with duct tape.) Yesterday, I read that Cohen, who lives in a 35,000 sq ft mansion in Greenwich, CT. (Where else?) Has just coughed up $60 million for a house in the Hamptons. To balance things out a bit, he’s got his 10,000 sq ft Manhattan apartment on the market for $115 million. But, according to the Bloomberg Billionaire Index, he’s still got ten fucking billion dollars tucked under the mattress. Anyway, the guy is a douchenozzle… He paid $8 million for one of Damien Hurst’s “Rotting Shark in Scummy Tank” scams. Maybe Steve Wynn could do us a favor and put his elbow through that piece of shit! F. Scott Fitzgerald put it best… "Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them.” And we know what that is!
It's not my fault it went bad... I'm an "Artist!"
