Douche Bank (Deutsche Bank mispronunciation/nickname)

Deutsche Bank (literally, “German Bank”) was founded in 1870 and is headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. There are several offices in New York City. Deutsche Bank is probably known to most New Yorkers for the former Deutsche Bank building opposite the World Trade Center; it was damaged in the September 11, 2001 attacks, but took a decade to be torn down.
Deutsche Bank has been mispronounced or nicknamed “Douche Bank” (douchebag) since at least 2004.
Deutsche Bank AG (for “Aktiengesellschaft,” meaning a company with limited shares) is officially known as “DB AG” or “DBAG.” The other obvious nickname for Deutsche Bank is “D-Bag” (for “douchebag”), but it appears that “D-Bag” in this slang sense has been infrequently used.
Wikipedia: Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank AG (literally “German Bank”; pronounced [ˈdɔʏtʃə ˈbaŋk]) is a global financial service company with its headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany. The investment bank division is head-quartered in London, United Kingdom. The bank employs more than 100,000 people in 74 countries, and has a large presence in Europe, the Americas, Asia Pacific and the emerging markets.
Deutsche Bank has offices in major financial centers including New York, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Moscow, Amsterdam, Toronto, São Paulo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Sydney and Mumbai. Furthermore, the bank is investing in expanding markets, such as the Middle East, Latin America, Central & Eastern Europe and Asia Pacific.
The bank offers financial products and services for corporate and institutional clients along with private and business clients. Services include sales, trading, and origination of debt and equity; mergers and acquisitions (M&A); risk management products, such as derivatives, corporate finance, wealth management, retail banking, fund management, and transaction banking.
Deutsche Bank USA
Deutsche Bank opened its first branch in NY in 1979 and was the first German bank to list on the NYSE (in October 2001). Deutsche Bank is the only investment bank physically located on Wall Street and one of the largest foreign-based employers in New York City. In the United States, it has over 11,000 employees in 28 states and 90 cities.

Who gives 2 floating shits how Tiger Woods played @ Douche Bank Open this weekend or how he likes to molest small woodland creatures as his trophy wife videotapes the proceedings besides an uptight pantload such as yourself.

Foreclosures: Where’s The Beef?

Yesterday we had our monthly Horry County Foreclosure Sale at the Courthouse.  All the usual suspects were duly present:  the “movers and shakers”, the sharks and their agents, “the suits” (the lawyers) and many spectators.  “The Show” was dry, especially now that the Presiding Judge, who is Southern, stopped calling “Deutsche Bank” - “Douche Bag, I mean Douche Bank”...

10 Years After 9/11, Deutsche Bank Tower Vanishes
The 41-story former Deutsche Bank building opposite the World Trade Center site is now the one-story former Deutsche Bank building.
Within a month, it should be down to zero; the last and largest of the 9/11 structural remnants to be cleared away, almost a full decade after it was seriously damaged in the attack and six years after the first of many promised completion dates.
The deconstruction project has spanned the administration of four governors, resulted in the death of two firefighters, cost nearly $160 million, riveted neighbors with fear of asbestos or other contaminants, revealed partial human remains from 9/11, darkened surrounding streets with tunnel-like sidewalk sheds and delayed progress on the overall redevelopment of the trade center, just across Liberty Street.

More BS from DOUCHE bank. 2 yrs to clear the inventories? Douchebags there must be talking to NAR realtors.

Two years?? They are dreaming. We are going sideways for a long long time. Some areas are going to be lucky to clear excess inventory in the next ten years. Remember shadow inventory? It’s still there! And if the D-bag economists have not noticed, the situation on main street is getting worse, not better.
