Inadvertent Humor in Today's Bankruptcy Headlines

posted by Jason Kilborn

One major benefit of being a member of the American Bankruptcy Institute is a nice rundown of daily bankruptcy-related headlines delivered by email daily. Today's list included a combination of headlines that made me smile ...

"Girls Gone Wild Files for Bankruptcy" was an interesting enough headline, but immediately following it was this: "Grupo Bimbo Wins Hostess Beefsteak Auction." Nice.


Would this suggest a new meaning for twinkie?

Uh, that's not a new meaning.

  • As a public service, the University of Illinois College of Law operates Bankr-L, an e-mail list on which bankruptcy professionals can exchange information. Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois. Although Bankr-L is a free service, membership is limited only to persons with a professional connection to the bankruptcy field (e.g., lawyer, accountant, academic, judge). To request a subscription on Bankr-L, click here to visit the page for the list and then click on the link for "Subscribe." After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless (rlawless@illinois.edu) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy. A link to a URL with a professional bio or other identifying information would be great.
