Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) inks a deal to buy direct marketing toy and party supply company Oriental Trading. Terms were not disclosed, but the WSJ reports the price at about $500M. The sale marks a nice payday for Oriental's largest shareholder KKR, which helped bring the company out of bankruptcy 18 months ago.

    Now Warren thinks he can make money buying assets from Henry Kravis, lol.......just further evidence he "jumped the shark" a long time ago. Oriental Trading will soon be part of The Great Buffet Estate Sale, lol.
