After a day spent cutting corners, canceling cable, baking bread for the kids, writing, this is the kind of thing that makes me look forward to the more and more likely uprising in this country. It ain’t going to my head carried around on a pike.
Revolutionaries (with pitchforks and torches): “Sir, did you spend nearly a half million dollars on colonics, pedicures, facials and golf last week?”
Me: “No, but I just read an article you might be interested in.”
(grunting and shuffling as the mob turns)
Me: “Hey guys! Wait up!”
Hot off the presses. As if the $5MM bonuses weren’t enough…
The Washington Post is reporting that a whole mess of AIG assholes just spend a shitload of money at a posh resort in California — a place that no one reading this could afford (in a good economy).
The tab? Read on:
And just last week, about 70 of the company’s top performers were rewarded with a week-long stay at the luxury St. Regis Resort in Monarch Beach, Calif., where they ran up a tab of $440,000.
At a House committee hearing yesterday, Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.) showed a photograph of the resort, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, and reported expenses for AIG personnel including $200,000 for rooms, $150,000 for meals and $23,000 for the spa.
Apparently only like 10 executives went along. Whew!
I want felony charges brought — right, fucking, now.
Anyone else’s head about to explode?
