GoldmanSachs666 Message Board

According to the Collins English Dictionary 10th Edition fraud can be defined as: "deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage".[1] In the broadest sense, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and also a civil law violation. Defrauding people or entities of money or valuables is a common purpose of fraud, but there have also been fraudulent "discoveries", e.g. in science, to gain prestige rather than immediate monetary gain

The Best Of The Worst Jokes About Goldman Sachs

There have been many jokes about Goldman Sachs over the past year and even though the actions of Goldman Sachs are not funny, some of the many jokes about them are.  As many of us are off for the Labor Day holiday, hopefully enjoying their time with family and friends, I though it might be nice to start the week off with a laugh or two.  
We certainly have not been able to laugh much in the aftermath of the financial storm caused by GS and the rest of their Wall Street gang but as the old saying goes, "what goes around, comes around".

Have   laugh on them courtesy of:
Many of the jokes at Wall Street's expense this past year have been aimed directly at Goldman Sachs.

They've been delightful, but we think the bubble has burst.
The evidence:

Blankfein just dropped from #1 to #100 on the Vanity Fair mogul list. Every single comedian has poked fun at the firm - twice. Even the President has gotten a laugh by playing on the collective hatred of "Goldman Sucks."

And an entire article dedicated to the growing number of Goldman Sachs jokes was written in April.

So the jokes on Goldman are overplayed and now that the summer is over, they almost aren't funny anymore. So before the cracks retire themselves, let's revisit some of the best worst jabs at Goldman Sachs.
Here are some of them.  To view them here
"$8.7 billion of our money has gone missing in Iraq! I didnt even know they had a Goldman Sachs over there." - Jay Leno
"While testifying before Congress yesterday, BP CEO Tony Hayward called the oil spill a 'complex accident caused by an unprecedented combination of failures.' Then he realized he was reading notes left on the stand by a Goldman Sachs executive." – Jimmy Fallon

On Goldman's "shitty deal" and consequent ban on swear words:
So let the word go forth, Goldman may still f**k you over, but from now on, they themselves will refer to it as making sweet sweet love to you. 
- Jon Stewart (Goldman clip)
"Last week, President Obama gave a speech in New York City about his plan to reform these rules on Wall Street, you know? And one embarrassing moment. When the head of Goldman Sachs was going through security, he was asked to empty his pockets and five Republican senators fell out."- Jay Leno
