Hmmm, 36,000. Delicious!


"John Snow will have a replacement, and he may very well come from the corporate world. But if it’s an A-list Wall Street CEO, I’ll buy a copy of Dow 36,000 and eat the first chapter."

So said Slate columnist Dan Gross on April 7.

On May 30th, Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson took the job. So Gross, true to his word, bought a used copy on Amazon for 4 cents, shredded the first chapter, mixed it with assorted greens, and ate it.

Here is the video of the meal:

The funniest part of this whole thing? By the time you read this, the book is now in a form most suitable to its content!

Um, hey Dan? No more stupid promises, ok?


I Eat a Book
I made a stupid promise. And now I have to keep it.
