Friday Follies: Eat Together, Cheat Together


I’m telling you, you can’t make this stuff up . All you can do is report it, and we here at the Chile Underground work our widdle piddies to the bone to find stuff you just can’t find anywhere else…

I’m not sure that a $50 billion loss is very funny. However, if you can’t find even a bit of humor amongst all the woe, then it’s time for the pine box and the preacher.

Dig deep enough, you’ll always find something.

Bernie Madoff (pronounced “made-off,” as in stolen) has executed a scheme for the ages. Even Kevin Bacon (of Six Degrees fame; a great foodie name too) got taken to the cleaners by the former SEC chairman. To prove that those who pull off the biggest scams get the best prison stays, Bernie gets to live under house arrest in his Manhattan penthouse as the government slowly digs out the details of his crimes.

But what of his wife, Ruthie? Is she innocent?

Maybe she didn’t have anything to do with the money side of things, but she isn’t beyond petty thievery of sorts. According to a recent post at Slashfood, Ruth and a friend “stole” authorship of a cookbook back in 1996: “Great Chefs of America Cook Kosher.” She did no research or writing on this volume. Just got her name on it. Connections really do matter, I suppose.

Somewhere, Charles Ponzi is smiling….

Enjoy the (Kosher Hustle) Heat!
