Goldman-Sachs, The Ben Greenman Musical

Posted By on Thu, Apr 29, 2010 at 11:01 AM

Noted librettist and Literary Upstart spokesjudge Ben Greenman has focused his angry, angry sense of humor on the recent civil suit brought by the SEC against Goldman-Sachs i-banker Fabrice Tourre, who "spings" things like this:

When poor homeowners
Get the axe
We load gold
Into our sacks
We sell off short
And break their neck
Uh oh, look out
Here comes the Sec"

(I wonder what Harold Ross would've thought of these... Or hell, sometimes I wonder how Ross would've approached "blogging." Shit, can you imagine A.J. Liebling writing a food blog: "It was with some hesitation, and no small amount of engineering acumen, that I arranged myself at the high, shared tables of Momofuku Noodle Bar, tucking myself in shoulder to shoulder with fellow New Yorkers all desperate for... soup.")
