Delicious cupcakes on me, everyone.

I bought 102,000 of them from some bakery in the UK, for 75% off, and the owner was not happy to see me when I picked them up.

Many business owners saw what went down and have basically said 'Wankin' F**kin' Groupon.'

Dig in.

I thought a "groupon" was something you could expect if a bunch of TSA agents was heading for you?

No joke. Just noting that all of the recent IPOs have been Fukushima-level toxic (including some of the government-sponsored retreads).

Groupon is headed to faillure, the reason is simple, it has way to many competitors now. It is very simple to copy the groupon concept.

The angle of the chart dangle is directly proportional to the attractiveness of the group-on menage a trois.

What an idiot. Why would she sell any cupcakes at a loss, even at a 50% discount she could of ended up being profitable. Some people these days have no brain.

 

 

BTW did the $40 original price tag on a dozen cupcakes suprise anyone else?

This is my definition of "social justice."  

 

edit: And forget subtle "schadenfreude" I'm giddy watching this thing sink. I'm only sorry that people were able to unload and exit this on day one. Literally makes me sick.

True enough, but I'm not so sure about the social justice tag. Their employees are heading for social security.

by "people", I assume you mean the banks that manufactured a supply shortage and were able to force the price higher at the open?

Yes. Also lets not forget the principles who were looking for an ejection seat since they realized they had no business model.  Everyone involved, including the flippers and even the retail investors who get their daily dose of CNBC advice, knew it was a quick pump and dump with no value. I'm actually surprised at the zeal with which people pretend to be surprised about this.

I don't think "Scahdenfreude" carries a particular quanitification of the level of joy in other people's suffering. I think you could be giddy with schadenfreude. I know I often am.

This is because DSK sold a huge number of shares once he realized the company is actually NOT named Grope On.
