Manhattan Infidel » Blog Archive » Drax Industries Declares Bankruptcy [cached]
Hugo Drax, madman and entrepreneur Hugo Drax, President and CEO of Drax Industries, exclusive maker of the Space Shuttle, has announced that in light of his failed attempt to kill all humans and repopulate the planet with a master race that his company will fold operations.
Analysts had watched in wonder as Drax had loaded his company with excessive debt and raided the pension fund to build a space station.
"The employees were pretty pissed about that" said one regulator. "Most wouldn't have minded if they could have retired to the space station but Drax kept tellling them 'Only perfect specimens. Only perfect specimens.' "
Many speculate that the bankruptcy is an attempt by Drax to avoid paying the massive fines levied upon him by the Federal government for among other things, stealing one of his own space shuttles, murdering several of his assistants and illegally importing banned South American plants with intent to kill off the human race.
"If you ask me the guy was a little nutty. I mean, all CEOs are eccentric but this guy just seemed to be unhinged."
Appearing on Larry King Live, Drax defended himself and his actions, stating that in business one must adapt or die.
Drax confessed and promised not to do it again.
Drax has apologized to his workers that will now be left without jobs, "Sorry about that", his investors "Whoops" and to his fifth grade teacher, "It was I who put the hamster in your desk drawer. Yes it was I, Hugo Drax.

JC: You should have invested in gold like G. Gordon Liddy told you to.
CRS: My own feeling on this is that Drax would have liked to be clean shaven but since he put all his money into a space station to build a new master race he ran out of shaving cream and said, "f*** it."
