As you probably know by now, Bernie Madoff has been sentenced to a 150-year sentence in jail after defrauding clients in up to $65B. He's going to the clink, and likely to the surprise of no one, considering his having cooked up a Ponzi scheme that left so many destitute.

By the way, did you know that the scheme is named after Charles Ponzi, who essentially invented the operation Madoff pulled off? Yup, it's true, and it makes Madoff and Ponzi look one in the same.

If you're confused, this "novelty print" should clear things up:


bernie madoff

THE AUCTION OR STORE ITEM IS A COPY OF A 8 1/2"x 11" COLOR BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPH. THIS NOVELTY PRINT IS COMPOSITE OF BERNIE MADOFF AND CHARLES PONZI..."THE GOLD DUST TWINS"......

THIS ITEM WILL MAKE A PERFECT ADDITION (MOUNTED, MATTED OR FRAMED) TO YOUR OFFICE, DEN, OR LIBRARY. ALSO A "GREAT ITEM" FOR YOUR BANKER OR FINANCIAL ADVISER.


Money's a funny thing, huh? It really brings out the worst in people, although sometimes you get a good "copy of a photograph" out of the deal.

Commemorate financial ruin!
