Fuck you, Wall Street. Fuck you for being so rich that you have money to spend. But fuck you more for not spending it, so we don't hate you. Thank you, Wall Street Wives—you're still rich, entitled, free-spending terrors!
As much as it pisses everyone off to see rich banker bastards flinging around money so soon after the total economic collapse of the world, which they caused, we need them flinging around that money, so the rest of us can get a piece of it. So to Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, telling your employees to cool it with the conspicuous consumption, for PR reasons: Fuck you, dude. You're rich, so you will never get the world to like you. The least you can do is stimulate the economy while you're being hated.
Rich guys' wives to the rescue! You may have to "lay low" with the big purchases yourself, Lloyd Blankfein, but your wife knows exactly how much you have in the joint checking account, and she can do whatever she wants. In fact, Page Six says the wives of Blankfein and another Goldman guy were spotted at a charity event in The Hamptons, complaining about being forced to wait in line: ""You have lost so much money because of this . . . Why should we be treated like the $650 donors?"
Exactly, ladies. The solution is to throw more of your husband's money at the problem. The little people will thank you. It's our very own "stimulus package."
