The Daily Show Tackles Wall Street Pay, Proposes "Angry Mob" Credit Card (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Last night, The Daily Show's John Hodgman took on Wall Street pay in his "You're Welcome" segment. Though, Hodgman predicted that "no meaningful changes whatsoever," will come to Wall Street, he did point out that the financial sector has an PR problem on its hands.

Hodgman's suggestions to improve Wall Street's image include: renaming CEOs "TLCEOs" (Tremendously Lucrative Chief Executive Officers), and executive wardrobe changes (like plaid hunting gear and sports jerseys) to make them more appealing to, "a simple commoner."

Then, there's a hilarious suggestion that captains of industry should become actual sea captains, and, of course, a new "Angry Mob" credit card.
