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)
