Greg Smith’s viral Goldman Sachs resignation op-ed sparked a veritable meme barrage — not to mention a potential book deal. Now, with the help of the inimitable Felix Salmon, Professor Frank Partnoy, and a few felt friends, we may have a parodic winner. This Avenue Q-style number lampoons the Oscar-winning song “Man or Muppet” with two mournful singing client-muppets, pockets stuffed with cash. “Am I a client or a muppet?” is the question. In the end, there’s a nice denouement; but we wouldn’t want to give it away.
