some really rich people are really stupid

I’ll just leave it up to Jose Canseco to prove for me. From an interview with the highly prestigious Inside Edition — on the foreclosure of his home:

“You know my life, this financial thing, is a very complicated issue. Obviously, when you make all that money, people think, ‘OK, let’s assume it is $35 million.’ People have to understand that $35 million, you’re paying the government 41 percent. That leaves you with about $17 or $18 million, not even. Then you’re taking care of your whole family.”

Taking care of your entire family with only $17 or $18 million must be rough.

    Hey man, you don’t even know.

    I saw him at the Cheesecake Factory about two months ago. Someone had to pay for his wife’s fakies. It’s also pretty expensive to buy enough Dapper Dan’s to keep you and your not-nearly-as-talented-or-roided-up brother, Ozzie, greased up like a plancha.

    Plancha. Look that one up.

  2. Jose and Latrell Spreewell. Man, they have it tough. And what’s a Plancha?

    A plancha is a grill commonly used to press Cuban sandwiches and other delectable treats from our communist neighbors to the south.

    And, yes, Canseco is Cuban.

    And, yes, he does look like a tool in person.

  4. Must be rough. I’d like to try it out…if even for a day! 😉

  5. How about posting a new blog every once in a while, ay what Rube?
