101 Dumbest Moments in Business

Business 2.0, a business magazine that somehow survived the dot com bust and seems to be doing well these days, published a list of the “101 Dumbest moments in business” (subscription needed) of the past year.

What does this have to do with Jewlicious?

Well, maybe it’s that one of the authors of the article is Adam Horowitz. He’s gotta be Jewish, right? If he isn’t, he should convert or change his name. Maybe it’s that they use an Israeli photographer, Rafael Fuchs, for some of their pics? Perhaps it’s the connection with its owner, Time Inc., which is really a part of Time Warner, a company descended from the famed Warner Bros. Hollywood studio, founded and run for many decades by the Jewish immigrant Warner Brothers from Poland? Maybe it’s the obvious Jewishness of Bugs Bunny and the Tasmanian Devil from Warner Bros. animation studios?

Maybe.

Or maybe it’s the #39 item on the list of the 101 Dumbest Moments in Business, which gives us the legendary and singular Dov Charney,

OK, but why did she go back for seven interviews?
Dov Charney, founder of American Apparel – a company whose reputation has been built around its high-quality, politically correct “sweatshop-free” T-shirts – agrees to be interviewed by a reporter from Jane magazine, who reports in July that Charney masturbated eight times in her presence over the course of two months.”

Dedicated Jewlicious readers know this is a well deserved prize and now I can’t wait for the 101 Dumbest Facial Hair Awards of 2004 article.

By the way, #40 goes to Conrad Black, who is, of course, a Canadian who gave up his Canadian-ness to become a British Lord (Lord Black of Crossharbour). He’s also the former owner of the Jerusalem Post, and married to the lovely Barbara Amiel, who is Jewlicious, and who loved Lord Black of Crossharbour enough to leave Canada to return to the Old Country, where she was born, with him. In gratitude, and no doubt from a profound love for her (stop being so cynical, the guy loves her, and how can you not love a Libertarian who wants the state to stay out of people’s bedrooms), he ponied up $1.1 million, according to the article, in order to provide her with gainful employment, while spending another $42,870 on a birthday party at NY City’s La Grenouille restaurant, where you might find our own amiable ck dining frequently and spending the big bucks he makes here at Jewlicious.

Oh, did I mention that this post is about to go into the archives? Mooo.

    I love the Jewish geography lesson. You’d think, what with controlling business and the media and everything, that statistically, Jews would make as many if not more mistakes in business than anyone else. But if all’s we got is Charney, I think he can be the (almost) sole representative of stupidity in business.

    But Esther, he’s a good businessman. Look at all the publicity he’s getting from these public orgasms. 🙂

    I didn’t realize that’s how we were measuring “good in business” these days. I’ll let the homeless masturbator by Port Authority (and his Israeli counterpart at the Tel Aviv bus station) know.

    Well, masturbation is only one way to measure business success. However, to be fair to the serial public masturbator, American Apparel seems to be doing very well.

    For the record, the incident described in Jane Maqgazine was not masturbation. Charney had an assistant give him “oral pleasure” while Claudine Ko, the reporter, watched. She was invited to join or participate but wisely chose not to.
