Insaaaane!

The Trident Growth Fund has concluded an unsuccessful ebay auction for the CRAZY EDDIE trademark and domain name. The firm's founder, high school dropout Crazy Eddie Antar, started with a lone store in Coney Island and built an empire of 43 stores before going bankrupt in 1989 after a massive stock fraud case. Some details of the stock fraud case can be found here. 'Crazy' Eddie Antar was termed by US Attorney Michael Chertoff "The Darth Vader of Capitalism". (via Metafilter)
