DSK Spending House Arrest Trying to Lose a Few Pounds

There’s a lot one could accomplish while on house arrest, really. With all that free time on your hands, why not pick up a new hobby, catch up on your correspondence or, you know, spend some time thinking about how you ended up there in the first place? The possibilities are limitless!
Former IMF Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn, for instance, has decided to take this time to work on his physique. Well, it would seem that way, at least, given his grocery list, according to the New York Post. The alleged sex criminal had a shipment of skinless chicken breast, Lean Cuisine and Crystal Light dropped off at his $50,000-a-month Tribeca pad — which we were totally inside roughly a week-and-a-half-ago (!!!), by the way. This word comes from one of the many delivery guys who have blabbed to the press about Strauss-Kahn’s goings on over the last week.
One messenger said that DSK denied a shipment of balloons. Another said the Strauss-Kahn family had him drop off a package of espresso.
And why have so many delivery guys broken their famed, solemn code of silence, spilling DSK’s laundry list of requests? Well, apparently Strauss-Kahn is a terrible tipper. Really.
“They never tip,” one courier told the Post.
It’s rather surprising. If we were under house arrest in one of the most high-profile criminal cases in the U.S., we’d probably do whatever it takes to keep anyone with privileged information about our day-to-day lives happy. You know, so they wouldn’t maybe feel resentful and start blabbing stuff to the nine gagillion reporters hanging out on the front porch. Just sayings all.
