I’m pleased to see that Fortune magazine has decided to pick up the popular “101 dumbest moments in business” list that was previously collected and written by its now-defunct Time Inc. colleague Business 2.0, which ran the list for seven years but closed shop earlier this fall.

Maria BartiromoFortune absorbed a number of Business 2.0 staffers, including former editor Josh Quittner. They obviously brought along some of their better ideas.

The 2007 list is out today, and it’s as hilarious as ever.

At No. 101, is CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo, with the headline, “What, no action figure?” Noted the magazine: “In January, CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo files to trademark her nickname, ‘Money Honey,’ for use with a wide array of children’s products, including piggy banks, jigsaw puzzles, mousepads, comic books, and stuffed animals.”
