Unintentional Irony

Doug Kass has a wonderful piece up at The Street about the ridiculous exploits of a day trader and investment hack he calls “Boca Biff.” It’s insightful, tragic, hysterically funny and sad. The moral of the story is obvious — that rank speculation is a very perilous business indeed. Duh. It also provides another great example of how easy it is to fool oneself.

Meanwhile, have a look at some of the ads that were embedded multiple times and on every page of Doug’s piece.

Boca BiffAs Doug rightly notes in the article, “You just can’t make this stuff up.”
