Crapital One (Capital One nickname)

Capital One bank was founded in 1988 in Richmond, Virginia. The obvious nickname of “Crapital One” has been cited in print since at least 2001.

Wikipedia: Capital One
COF, or Capital One Financial Corp. (NYSE: COF) is a U.S. based bank holding company specializing in credit cards, home loans, auto loans, banking, and savings products. A member of the Fortune 500, the company helped pioneer the mass marketing of credit cards in the early 1990s, and it is now the fourth largest customer of the United States Postal Service and has the 8th largest deposit portfolio in the United States. It has its corporate offices in Tysons Corner, unincorporated Fairfax County, Virginia, near McLean.
