Under a Wednesday, Sept. 13, agreement, Ford Motor will pay Bond $25,000 per day for actual days worked. Bond is expected to work as a consultant for about one-and-a-half days adjacent to each of the company's seven regularly scheduled board meetings per year.Gee, $25K a day. How did we miss this gig? We just know we could have done this.
Bill Ford: I want to buy a boat.
C!C!C! Financial Consulting Services: No.
Ford: I want to buy a pony.
Ford: I want to buy Jaguar for billions, dump money into it, and yet never make money from it.
CCCFCS: Good God, man! No!
Ford: OK. The day's over. Do you want your payment now?
CCCFCS: Boy, howdy!
So, 25,000 clams a day. Seems like a lot of moolah for financial consulting to us. What's Bill Ford up to?
A. Paying off gambling debt. Stupid XFL.
B. Likes to have dude whisper in his ear, "After the meeting, Twinkies!"
C. Trying to sell off pieces of PAG in order to raise cash so Ford family can buy stock back and go private.
