Bankrapers

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: bank rape ers

Sentence: As CEO (Cheat Em Officer) of the bank, the first disorder of business was to set my salary at a million of your invested dollars, per year.

The rest of your money, we sinvested in the worthless stock of these business buzzards' companies. For screwing you out of your money, and screwing the government out of billions more, we have become known as the biggest bankrapers in history!

Etymology: BANK, RAPE. Also a word play on bank robbers. BANK - business offering financial services: a business that KEEPS MONEY for individual people or companies, exchanges currencies, makes loans, and offers other financial services. RAPE - violent abusive destructive treatment.

Loanarranger

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: lone ar rayn jer

Sentence: When Mary opened an account at the local bank, she was hoping to borrow enough money to finance a new home. She soon realized that the money she would borrow would cost her five times again as much in interest and that virtually she never would really own her home, in her lifetime. The interest that this loanarranger charged her went towards expensive lifestyles and foolish investment decisions of the bank's executives. She stormed out of the bank manager's office, crying "Goodbye, accrual world!"

Etymology: Loan Arranger (institute/person who lends money at an exhorbitant interest rate) & Wordplay on The Lone Ranger (1950's tv Western series of a lone surviving Texas Ranger who was nursed back to health by the Indian Tonto rides with him, on Silver and Scout, throughout the West, doing good while living off a silver mine which supplies him with income and bullets)

Theloandanger

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: the lone dane jer

Sentence: "With his faithful fiscal companion, Bunko, the daring, diabolic and resourceful masked rider of the plain, that Lion of Credit, led the fight for unlawful banking and disorderly monetary conduct in the United States. Nowhere in the pages of history can one find a greater champion of injustice. No deed went unrealized. Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear (and today)...wherever a family stands to lose their home, or a small company has to declare bankruptcy or average citizens have their money used and lost, all the while being charged for each "transaction"; where cars and boats and motorbikes are repossessed; where an individual's assets are frozen (painful) or where an investor jumps from a bridge saying, "Goodbye,it's accrual world", it will be on account of Theloandanger. From out of the past come the thundering hoofbeats of the great horse Silver Bullion! Theloandanger rides again!" MisadVentures usually concluded with one of the characters lamenting the fact that they never learned the anti-hero's name ("Who was that masked man?"), only to be told, "Why, he's Theloandanger! He's the Bank's CEO, he's under indictment, out on bail in a plea-bargain arrangement, that's why we never know his real name!" as he and Bunko ride away, heading for South America, where there were plenty of non-extradition treaties. Departing on his white horse Silver Bullion, the Danger would infamously say "Hi-yo, your Silver is away!" as the horse galloped toward the setting sun. Each venture was not over until the dividEND!

Etymology: Wordplay on The Lone Ranger(old Western radio and television series) & Loan (money leant by a bank for a fee) & Danger (peril;a venture undertaken without regard to possible loss or injury or harm)
