Hats off to cafepress.com for jumping on the Lucy Gao bandwagon. As reported on a few blogs, the famous Citigroup intern whose email about a well organized 21st birthday celebration at the Ritz was circulated around the City and Wall Street has now seen that invite turned into a t-shirt line. With five different styles and a value t-shirt for only $11.99, you can't go wrong. Our favorite: "Lucy Gao kicked me out of the Ritz (I arrived at 9:01 pm)." ...And sticking with the apparel category, what to say about JPMorgan's former employee Gregory Halley? The former mailroom clerk stole more than $100 million in corporate checks before being caught with about 40 checks hidden in his socks, according to news reports. We're just left to wonder, how big are his shoes?...And finally, here's a bank we wouldn't mind withdrawing from. According to a Reuters' story, a roulette wheel pops onto the screen of ATMs at Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank in Japan, with a winning spin leading to a 1,000 yen ($8.50) payday. Last summer the bank launched on-screen slot machines, which also offered 1,000 yen or an ATM fee waiver. A spokesman is quoted as saying, "Using ATMs is impersonal and lacks communication. We wanted to add some fun."
