Bain, hoping to improve image, plans to change corporate name to Nemesis

Or Evil Job-sucking Greedheads, they can't decide. Or Diff'rent Strokes. (Probably your first Conrad Bain reference today.)

6. Strange enough, I already call them that.

Clear and to the point. But I call a lot of repug politicians and companies fuckwads, so it might get a little confusing.

3. why not Cthulhu Holdings?

That way, folks could say "Cthulhu swallowed my company" or "Cthulhu took my job." At least the victims would be able to say something cool about what happened to them.

10. The Dunn and Bradstreet Horror?


On due consideration, going with

"The Rats in the Wallstreet"

11. Win!

The Rats in the Wallstreet is the clear winner. Nominee for runner-up: "The Doom That Came to Willard."

A few other Lovecraft titles are perfect Bain monikers as is, without modification:
Ashes
The Crawling Chaos
The Lurking Fear
The Thing on the Doorstep
The Tomb
The Trap
The Winged Death

And, by the way, doesn't Romney seem like he could have been revivified (partly) by Herbert West, Reanimator?

17. The comparison to Herbert West is spot on. He kept trying and trying and trying,

never lost confidence in his monsters.

12. "Romney, hoping to improve image, adopts Todd Bridges"

I completely forgot that Gary Coleman had died, and nearly said him. Thank you, Google!

13. Do you know what nemesis means?

A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent.

15. Probably not. I was just looking for a synonym for the homonym.

Of course, if I were any good, I'd be looking for a homonym for the synonym for the homonym. Ah well.

16. I was just quoting a movie

It's one of my favorite scenes, but very NSFW due to language, hence my not posting the clip

14. How about in honor of the forth coming "The Dark Knight Rises"...

Just change the spelling to BANE. You already know they're a villainous and psychotic entity...
