Get Your Lehman Brothers Detritus on eBay!

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

The Danish business newspaper Børsen, while naturally covering tightly this week’s enormous travails in the American financial establishment, also has found at least some on-line pixel-space for one tertiary effect: there are some mighty interesting souvenirs coming on the market via eBay (Buy a piece of finance-history on eBay).

For instance? Consider the exquisite Lehman water-pitcher on offer: the seller comments “[Lehman] Administrative Director Dick Fuld told me that this pitcher cannot be smashed to pieces, but he also said that about our loan-business two months ago. Caveat emptor, I would say.” Bids started at 99¢ but later reached $20.50 for the item, the newspaper reports. Or you can also bid to become the proud owner of a Lehman-brand fire-safety hat (brand-sikkerhedshat). “Become the owner of a piece of financial history,” the seller implores.
