Talk about your passive aggressive bosses. One unidentified hedge fund manager has been revealed to practice a very unique approach when it comes to dealing with executives at the companies he's targeting. 

Apparently, his method of intimidation involves drinking from a very special mug... that just so happens to be printed with pictures of his fallen rivals:
A partner at one activist hedge fund, based in New York, has a mug he likes to use during talks with corporate executives. The mug features the photographs of chairmen his hedge fund has removed in earlier activist campaigns.

If this is not persuasive enough to make the executives pay attention, the hedge fund manager, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, will threaten to take his activist case to the public.
