The Awl's Noted Pork Arbitrage Theorist Willy Staley On Bloomberg TV

I guess my favorite part of this Bloomberg TV segment on our McRib v. pork market exposé (besides the fact that they talked to actual pork futures analysts!) is when they bring McRibs down to Occupy Wall Street. (That really happened!) I'm guessing they just didn't show the part where the vegans threw them back in the producers' faces? TV is amazing.

Gee, doesn't Bloomberg have an outlet in Ohio that could have shot some b-roll of some sad sack 45-year-old laid-off factory worker asking some young person wearing a clip-on tie for his McRib "to stay?"

@Abe Sauer Weird, I was told Midwesterners are really nice!

@willystaley Funny, I was told people in New York only play the contrarian card and claim to love the McRib while tweeting jokes about it.

Do traders really call it "arbitraaazzh," all French-like?

But what does this mean for the Frozen Concentrated Orange Juice market?

I'm still not convinced that there is an all-pork sandwich available.

Love the gratuitous Trading Places clip. I would have loved it even more if he had finished with "As for McDonalds, they have certainly….stepped on the ball".
