FT. LAUDERDALE, FL – During a short break from counseling Madoff investment victims, PhD Ape ran into a client begging for help – Elliot Spitzer!
PhD Ape has come under fire since announcing his intention to offer free counsel sessions to the duped senior citizens. Current and former clients flooded his office seeking refunds for past services.
“I decided to get away from all the media attention and the barrage of phone calls and emails,” PhD Ape said through a representative. “I left my Blackberry and cell phone in Palm Beach and headed for Fort Lauderdale for some R & R. The last thing I expected was to run into any clients.”
Seeking to escape the media himself, former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer is in Florida visiting his bubby for Hanukkah. Spitzer has been getting a lot of attention this week since he publicly ridiculed his new job.
“It’s been a very difficult year for Elliot,” PhD Ape told reporters. “Its only natural that he express discontent with being an online blogger for Slate when just a few months ago he was governor of the second most populous state in the Union and one of the few rising stars in the Democratic Party. Its quite a fall from grace.”
“I don’t plan to spend much time with Elliot in Florida. I have work to finish in Palm Beach and then its back to New York. If he feels like he needs counseling sessions, I will be more than happy to see him. That is, if he can afford me on a blogger’s salary. After this, I’m done with charity cases.”
