When he was just a pasty nerd, out here defrauding investors and exponentially increasing the price of important drugs, I feel very certain that I could’ve taken Martin Shkreli. Now I am less sure, and let me tell you, it’s a sickening feeling:

Notorious “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli has bulked up in prison.

“He’s got his prison muscles,” under his navy blue detention uniform, one source close to the defense noted of the convicted Ponzi fraudster’s first court appearance since he was locked up in September.

That’s from a New York Post report, discussing how the awful dirtbag is holding up in jail, while he awaits sentencing after being convicted of two counts of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud. Apparently the now-bearded Shkreli is well-liked by his jail-mates:

“They like him in there,” the source told The Post of Shkreli’s fellow cons.

“They don’t put their arms around him and say ‘Give me your money’ like they do to other new prisoners… they like him.”

Here are some photos of this nerd-ass dork from before he started hitting the jail weights and grew out the beard:

How swole can he possibly be? I think I can still take him.
