Gold Medal in the Stupid Olympics

My son-in-law, Simon Pride, passes along this article from CFO.com about a county treasurer here in Michigan somewhere who (a) embezzled $1.2 million, and then (b) thought the place to invest it was in one of those Nigerian e-mail schemes.

My guess is that he needed money badly, and just $1.2 million wasn't enough for all the Cialis, Viagra, pornography, and hot stocks he was buying on the internet.  Probably also went long in Hormel because they make all that Spam everybody's talking about.
