Finance Interns Kill Time by Stuffing Themselves with Meat
3:05 pm, July 29th | by Amy Tennery
So, I was just starting to feel all bad (kind of) for summer Wall Street interns. You know, with their allegedly horrendous 85-hour work weeks, their crazy, stay-until-three-in-the-morning work schedules, and so on. All this without the promise (necessarily) of getting a job at the end! Yea, I felt sort of bad.
Then I heard how the interns at JPMorgan spend their summer Fridays. And I felt less bad.
What are they doing, you might ask? They’re holding a White Castle mini-burger eating contest. As we speak.
This according to Dealbreaker, which noted that the three interns involved have already tied twice so far. (They’re allegedly doing multiple rounds.)
The current five-minute record is, apparently, 11 minis.
And these are the people who will control your money one day. If they aren’t too busy treating their hypertension and gout.
What makes the mental image of interns stuffing themselves with burgers even better is the knowledge that there is, possibly, a super model watching them right now. Remember her!? The gorgeous model who’s interning at JPMorgan this summer? Xenia Tchoumitcheva! She’s at the same firm! Possibly the same office!
We can imagine it now:
Oh, hey, Xenia Tchoumitcheva. So, what was it like being the Miss Switzerland 2006 runner-up? Oh, wait, sorry, gotta run! OMNOMNOMNOM NOM NOM.
