Girl Seeks Buyout Boy

A leggy blonde is looking for someone “excited” by the Harman buyout bust, according to a personal ad posted Friday at craigslist. You only need an interest in such things — not necessarily the money associated with its actual pursuit. In other words, financial journalists may apply…

Here’s the full post:

KKR and Goldman walking away from Harman?!

Are you excited by the calling off of this $8 billion deal?
Do you buy their MAC claim?
What do you thing this means for other megadeals that are yet to close?

[Great. Now stay with me here as I very subtly switch my line of questioning.]

Do you tend to appreciate girls who are interested in such things but don’t necessarily look as if they would be interested in such things?
And do you like girls who reach for the WSJ before People?
Finally, do you like tallish girls with blond hair, WASPy aesthetics, and excellent equestrian skills?

Well, then, we should probably have a conversation. Do drop me an e-mail.
