While I still haven't heard about the losses of Yeshiva University in the Ponzi scheme, I have come across some humorous proposals for alternative punishment for Bernard Madoff, the man behind the scheme.

James Pethokoukis has nominated him to run another ponzi scheme, Social Security. (HT: Justin Fox)

And Tyrone, Tyler Cowen's alterego, has this to say:
What about that guy who set up the phony investment company? Can the Treasury make a new one of those, only bigger?
