Naming Corzine's hedge fund

FORTUNE -- Jon Corzine is "weighing whether to start a hedge fund," according to a NY Times article that also says the former MF Global boss is unlikely to face criminal charges for his role in the brokerage firm's collapse. Somewhere, the ghost of P.T. Barnum must be smiling.

Seriously, how could anyone trust this guy with their money? Unless someone has discovered a way to tag cash with GPS locators, it seems incomprehensible. In fact, the only target market I see is plaintiff lawyers whose seed capital might persuade future clients other accredited investors to pony up.

While we wait for this bad idea to pass us by, some thoughts for the new fund name.

  • Patsy Partners
  • Buyer Beware LP
  • I-Can't Associates
  • Redlight Capital
  • Appalosser Management
  • Mr. Magoo Management
  • Sac (of) Capital Advisors
  • Water Under the Bridge Associates
