April Fool Yacht Hot Tub

Nouriel Roubini has been ordered by New York City to remove his giant hot tub - often the site of wild parties with younger models - from his Manhattan penthouse's roof, according to a report.

 The economist, nicknamed 'Dr. Doom' for his forecasts of the financial crisis, failed to get approval for the tub and roof deck from the Department of Buildings, the New York Post reported.

"Now Roubini has been slapped with a violation and was ordered to remove the Jacuzzi, the deck and a party room he built, complete with a bar and bathroom, on the roof of his party penthouse," the paper wrote.
