A Financial Update (With Violence)

I meant to post the link to this article back when it popped up almost 10 days ago, but I've been having too much fun lately neglecting all of you.

Anyway, news of this financial crisis isn't all bad, check out this story from CNBC:

While former Lehman CEO Richard Fuld was testifying before the House Oversight Committee Oct. 6, CNBC reported he had been punched in the face at the Lehman Brothers gym after it was announced the firm was going bankrupt.

It goes on to say:

From two very senior sources – one incredibly senior source – that he went to the gym after … Lehman was announced as going under. He was on a treadmill with a heart monitor on. Someone was in the corner, pumping iron and he walked over and he knocked him out cold.

Apparently no one else but those two were in the gym, but I'd like to assume Smokey was there for a timely "You got knocked THEFUCKOUT!"

The best part is that the puncher was pumping iron, getting huge, before decking that old guy. That's what we call "Honorary Flexer Status".

Live it, learn it.

I'm hoping for a Usain Bolt flex afterwards, with just the humming of the treadmill going.
