Here's your hint: the question came from someone not only known by colleagues as a dick, but a lover of dick as well. Chrome, rubber, glass, whatever. Okay, guess.
If you answered Jeffrey Gundlach, you win the prize (a title of your choice from this collection).
Former colleagues recall Gundlach as brilliant but arrogant. One recalls shortly after he joined TCW having lunch with Gundlach and being asked: "What's it like having lunch with a genius?"
Here's a little bit more about the genius who brought his 6 inch brown rubber penis, weed, pink and black strap restraining device, and copy of Ass Traffic Volume 2 to the office:
* He's a B-lo Boy (and presumed lover of Kan-Jam)
* Dartmouth grad
* Former drummer
* Got into finance because of Robin Leach ("he was inspired to work in financial services in the 1980s by an episode of the TV show "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" hosted by Robin Leach and featuring the 10 top-paying careers.")
* Followed out the door by a bunch of clients and colleagues ("Small investors have jumped ship as well, and the $12 billion TCW Total Return Bond Fund Gundlach used to manage has shriveled to $5.9 billion."
* This: "Gundlach acknowledges that he frequently refers to himself in email as "The Godfather" or "The Pope" and occasionally sends reprimands to those who fail to use the monikers in addressing him."
