What Are O’Learyisms & Why They Matter to Startup Businesses?

This short clip is jam-packed with some of the most hilarious O’Leary one-liners and outright insults to startups ever uttered on the show:

Some of my favorites:

  • “We’re spanking him like a baby seal!”
  • “We’re going to put that in my museum of ideas that are really bad and kill people.”
  • “Thank you for your time. I need to go make some money now. Please leave.”
  • (To a group of children) “Now you kids are seeing what life’s really like: In the end, it’s all about the money — all the time.”
  • “I’ll let you in on a secret: Everybody calls me Mr. Wonderful.”
  • “Barbara, if you screw this up for me, I’m gonna spank you like a baby seal!”
  • “I like to have people like you doing all the work so I can sit at home eating Bon Bons.”
  • “Turn around and get outta here.”
  • (Cruel, but not shocking) “If a cat ever gave me a problem and I was in a high apartment, I’d have no problem…”
  • “What are you thanking us for?”

The government agency believes many have omitted tens of thousands in earnings from their tax forms.

The business world should not be boring. Agreed?
