Bernanke Transitions to the World's Oldest Profession

April 29, 2015
Pimco Hires Former Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke As Adviser

Mr. Bernanke, who left the Fed in 2014, has had a relationship with Pimco since late last year, contributing to the firm’s periodic investment forums.

Forums? Craigslist? It's all good.

“We’ve been building a relationship with him since last year,” Pimco Chief Executive Douglas Hodge said in an interview.

Pimco? Pimps? It's all good.

Pimco executives declined to say how much Mr. Bernanke would be paid or other details of his contract with the firm.

Will the cash be left on the nightstand? This particular escort can't come cheap. He's got a lot of f%^king experience. He f%^ked up the housing market. He f%^ked up the economy.

Relationships, baby. That's what I'm talking about.

I don't really blame Bernanke for anything. When you hire an arsonist to watch over the FIRE and then something bursts into flames and the only tool you give him to control the flames is a fire house that spews gasoline what did you expect would happen?

Nothing for him to do now but kick back and smoke'm if you gotte'm.

p.s. I failed on my first attempt at verifying I'm not a robot. Apparently robots also sometimes confuse nigiri and shashimi as only one is sushi and the other isn't (first time I've gotten the picture captcha)

Smoking after having relations? That's gotta be one of the oldest clich├ęs in the book! ;)

mab,

It's better to look good than feel good.
