Ken Lay passed away today in Colorado, robbing his victims from the Enron scandal once again. Now they won't have the satisfaction of seeing him sentenced and spending a considerable amount of time behind bars.
In Toobworld, Lay was portrayed by Mike Farrell of 'M*A*S*H' fame in "The Crooked E: The Unshredded Truth About Enron" back in 2003.
I would imagine he was also portrayed several times over in Skitlandia, aka Earth Not Ready For Prime Time, which is the alternate TV dimension based upon comedy sketches from variety shows.
Come the Fall, 'Saturday Night Live' should have Chris Parnell play Ken Lay in a sketch set in Hell, with a cameo guest appearance by Jon Lovitz as the Devil.
It'll be small comfort to those who lost their life savings due to his piggish greed, but every little bit helps.
Don't drop the soap in the Ninth Circle of Hell, Ken!
"We're the bad guy. We're the criminals.
And don't think it's just this company.
There's hundreds of Enrons out there, a thousand!
Cooking the books, inflating the earnings,
Hiding the debt, buying off the watchdogs."
