Have Some Punch!

posted by on October 7 at 11:10 AM


I’m typically against violence, but for this, I’ll make an exception:

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.

Read the full report here. (And thank you, Slog tipper SeMe.)

Sweet cake of Jesus, that's funny.

Fuld earned a half-billion dollars at Lehman, $45 million last year. He's doing JUST FINE.

BTW, what kind of a prong declares his company is bankrupt and then goes to the company gym?

That's $1 out of $45 million worth of payback he deserves.

@1 that's a hilarious observation. i'd want to get out of dodge were i in his very expensive shoes...

That was a weird article:

"Ward determined Fuld deserved the beating based on his testimony before the committee."
What kind of statement is that in a news article? Not that I disagree, but to state it as a "fact" instead of just how you feel about the douchebag is a little strange.

Oh, and Fnarf, how funny is it that he went to the Lehman Brothers gym. I mean, you've just announced the firm is going under, everyone hates you, why not go spend some time amongst the "people". I'm sure everyone was looking at him thinking, what the fuck, doesn't he have other things he should be doing right now?

Physical violence of any kind sucks. Sorry, but it sucks.

@ 6,

Well at least he'll have his $450 MILLION to fall back on.

I really hope there is security camera video of this and it goes youtube soon.

Yeah maybe he can pull some frozen stacks of $100 bills from his freezer to apply to his face

I have to admit I've thought fondly about having the chance to punch Kerry Killinger. Not that I ever actually would! But the thought makes me all warm inside.

Speaking of punched in the face, I still mourn the untimely post-9/11 passing of "That's My Bush".
