For Those Who Can Afford to Have a Sense of Humor Re: Madoff

I just learned a new and brilliant noun from

The word is Ponzi Crawl:

A pub crawl that adds a new person to buy a round at each location. Each new person is promised that they will get free drinks at all the future bars if they buy this round. Obviously, whoever joins the ponzi crawl last gets screwed!

As in: Let's get some suckers to buy us beer on a ponzi crawl this weekend!

(Editor's Note: While Ponzi Crawl treats symptoms of being victimized in a Ponzi scheme, it is not a cure. Consult a mental health professional before taking Ponzi Crawl.)
