A Doughnut Box Full of Lies

The latest company to restate its earnings due to accounting irregularities? Krispy Kreme. Its stock has plunged and an SEC investigation is even underway.

Enron. Adelphia. Tyco. Worldcom. Global Crossing. The executives of these companies may have enriched themselves by stealing from their employees and shareholders. But even Dennis Kozlowski's legendary toga party wasn't as gluttonous as your average trip to Krispy Kreme. Yum.
