Today’s Greed Is Just A Lick Away

Today I checked Google for inspiration. Here’s what comes up as the latest and greatest interests of our world today:
1. A trader at London office of hedge fund is among those arrested in what authorities describe as a massive insider-trading scheme. The founder’s name? Louis Moore Bacon (ironic)
2. A former teen beauty queen who appeared on the ABC reality comedy Wife Swap more than two years ago has filed a $100 million lawsuit against the network, which she accuses of ruining her life by inaccurately portraying her as a spoiled brat. (also ironic)
3.It’s once again Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day.
4. Sprint is introducing its brand new touchscreen supersonic smartphone today.

What do these events have in common?  One billionaire is getting sued for being too greedy. One greedy girl is suing to become a billionaire, and the rest of the nation is standing in line while they greedily await FREE ice cream as they witness the madness while discussing their envy of other’s greed on their new SUPERSONIC SPRINT phones.

The only question I have is this: chocolate or vanilla?
