Expense-Account Lunches Live On

The Huffington Post writes that "one of the biggest casualties" of the Wall Street financial meltdown that occurred a year ago was the expense-account lunch.

But now some corrupt soul has developed a scheme to allow business execs to continue expensing those pricey meals by claiming them as non-food expenses. According to Huffington Post:
Maloney & Porcelli have created an "expense-report generator" that lets you take the total you spent on your meal (or essentially any figure that you choose) and creates fake cab, office supply, and cheap-o meal receipts so your boss won't know about the filet mignon and merlot you had on the company's tab.

The receipts come looking like they've been photocopied onto 8 1/2 x 11 paper, and are even perfectly wrinkled to look like they've been mussed while stuffed into a pocket.
The unscrupulous are creative, aren't they?
