    BofA Employees Respond To Merrill Lynch Business Card Complaints With Graphic Images Of Flag-On-Bull

    Earlier this week, we learned that Bank of America has a number of very unhappy ex-Merrill Lynch brokers on it hands. Their beef? New business cards that feature a slightly smaller bull than in times past, an obvious affront, as they see it, to the Merrill brand. While no formal demands have been made, it’s […]

    Merrill Lynch Brokers See Shrunken Bull As Line In The Sand

    As many of you will recall, back in 2008, then Bank of America CEO Ken Lewis agreed to buy Merrill Lynch. While it wasn’t a Countrywide-level disaster of an acquisition (i.e. a bomb that’s never stopped going off), it wasn’t Lewis’s best laid plan, which is why he actually tried to get out of the […]

    You Are Now Once Again Free To Invade The Wall Street Bull’s Personal Space

    The bull, who has been surrounded by barricades for nearly three years in order to keep him safe from Occupy Wall Street protesters, finally got the room to stretch out today when Police Commission Bill Bratton ordered his staff to remove the barriers. After keeping his fans at arms length for so long, the bull […]

    Collateral Damage From Occupation Of Wall Street: No Love For Bull’s Balls

Perhaps you’re a hedge fund manager who’s down like 47 percent through September, and was told your luck could change by rubbing those balls. Perhaps you work downtown and simply […]

    What’s Happening In This Bull/Bear Scene?

    Above is a desk statue being hocked to employees of various investment banks, along other crap like deal toys, frames for your certifications, bookends and so on and so forth. While the person who brought it to our attention was of the opinion it was “too dirty” for the office, I think he might be […]

    UBS Messes With Client, Literally Gets A Bull’s Horns

    Let me ask you people something. If you were going to protest UBS, how might you do it? Stand outside the building chanting “UBS sucks”? Rent a helicopter and dump millions of 10-4’s on the roof? Smear a bunch of melted Toblerone bars on your shoes and track that shit through the lobby? Sure, if […]

    A Modest Proposal

    Merrill Lynch needs a new logo to more accurately reflect the trajectory it’s been taking of late, and its goals for the future.
