The 'quitting Goldman Sachs' parodies multiply

For some background, go here. ABC:

A blistering New York Times op-ed about Goldman Sachs has inspired parodies all over the Internet, from an angry Darth Vader to “Mad Men’s” favorite ad exec, Don Draper.

The op-ed, written by former Goldman Sachs executive Greg Smith, was a harsh critique of the culture at the Wall Street investment bank. The piece was published early Wednesday and complained about a company with “morally bankrupt” people:

“Goldman Sachs is one of the world’s largest and most important investment banks and it is too integral to global finance to continue to act this way. The firm has veered so far from the place I joined right out of college that I can no longer in good conscience say that I identify with what it stands for.”

The parody getting the most online action so far is a piece by Darth Vader via the Daily Mash, titled “Why I Am Leaving the Empire.” In the piece, the former Anakin Skywalker laments the “massive, genocidal space machines” that have overtaken his company:

“The Empire is one of the galaxy’s largest and most important oppressive regimes and it is too integral to galactic murder to continue to act this way. The firm has veered so far from the place I joined right out of Yoda College that I can no longer in good conscience point menacingly and say that I identify with what it stands for.”

When I started here, there was an entire refrigerator stocked with coconut water. Now, that fridge holds nothing but agave juice. I don’t care for it.
