New York Stock Exchange chairman Richard Grasso is taking the NYSE’s image revamp to heart. Or, depending on how you look at it, to head.

New York Stock Exchange chairman Richard Grasso is taking the

NYSE’s image revamp to heart. Or, depending on how you look at it, to

head.



Grasso recently shocked onlookers by shaving his head, the latest in a

line of personal appearances meant to spruce up the NYSE’s profile.



He also joined actor Kelsey Grammer and Viacom prexy Sumner Redstone to

be slimed with green goo on Nickelodeon.



The NYSE, recently portrayed as the stodgy older brother to hip young

Nasdaq, didn’t have any official comment on the newly bald pate of its

boss. ’If you’re asking me about a haircut, it must be a slow news day,’

said a spokesperson. Financial consultant Gary Book dubbed the move

’bold and radical,’ and opined that Grasso ’is probably trying to

compete with the Nasdaq by being on the cutting edge.’



We await news of Grasso’s tattoos and his imminent marriage to Carmen

Electra.
