A U.S. toy company has released a product called Smash-Me Bernie: a smiling seven-inch effigy of Bernard Madoff dressed in a red devil’s suit. It comes with a “commemorative” hammer, to be used to smash the Madoff look-alike. Next up, a doll that looks like ex-Merrill Lynch CEO, John Thain, famous for spending $1.2-million redecorating his office, as he was axing thousands of jobs at the ailing securities firm.
