Then and Now: Oscar the Grouch

Stumbled across this email I sent out for work a few months back and thought I'd share with everyone.  We were having a contest where you had to email your favorite celebrity then and now update.  I made up my own.

  Then: Oscar the Grouch was a Muppet character on the television program Sesame Street. He has a green body and no (visible) nose (although he claims to have one), and lived in a trash can.

Now: Oscar lives in Greenwich, CT with his wife and two daughters.  He founded his own small commodity hedge fund named O.T. Grouch Capital.  He attributes his success to his family, work ethic, and knowing what it’s like to really live life in the gutter.  Oscar rides his bike to work every day due to not being able to obtain a drivers license…. Because he is a puppet.
On May 29, 2009, Oscar the Grouch appeared in an ABC television special on economics called Un-broke: What You Need To Know About Money. He shared the fundamentals of everyday finance with facts about credit cards, mortgages, stocks and bonds, and investing.
