Now that is just wrong.

The folks at National Lampoon, yup, that National Lampoon, instead of working on the next Van Wilder straight to video release, have gotten into a spot of trouble.

According to the AP:

Federal prosecutors in Philadelphia have filed charges against the CEO and other executives at National Lampoon Inc., accusing the executives of trying to artificially inflate the company's stock price.
...
Prosecutors on Monday filed three indictments and an information charging seven people with conspiracy and securities fraud.


This wouldn't have happened if P.J. O'Rourke was still there.

OK, it would have happened, but he would have made sure they weren't so sloppy.
