Enron 'Crooked E' For Sale "The ultimate symbol of the bankrupt power trader -- one of the ubiquitous chrome signs dubbed "the Crooked E" for its distinctive slant and commentary on the company's questionable dealings -- is on the auction block." The sign is only one of thousands of items up for sale September 25th and 26th, at the Houston Radisson Astrodome hotel.

I myself, am thinking of buying up all of the stock certificates available on eBay. My bathroom needs new wallpaper.

On a slightly unrelated topic, has anyone else noticed the uncanny resemble the slanted DELL 'E' is to the Crooked Enron E?

Weird.

Will they be auctioning Ken Lay's testicles? I hope so.

And here in Boston, a number of people have noted the similarity of the Enron sign to the Economy Hardware logo. (I know about the "number of people" because when I mentioned it at Economy a few months ago, there was a chorus of groans and laughter from the staff at the registers directly under the giant logo.)

...maybe the white house will buy them.

This one is being webcast. I like to check DoveBid occassionally, can get some good deals if you keep your eyes out. Beware of transaction charges, though.

Before reading this post completely, I thought there were ecstasy pills floating around, stamped with the Enron "E" logo.

"Yo man, how were those double-stacked Enrons you took last night...?"

"Man, those were totally crooked..."
