Slang Stock Market

I’m shorting the word “douche.”

After a strong resurgence in 2005 and showing strong staying power through 2007, its day has come. Lately most of the people I’ve seen use it fit into two categories, or a combination of both:

1) people over 40 who have finally had the word passed down the cool chain from their younger friends and co-workers

2) the “douches” originally being described themselves

Pretty soon even the douches won’t be calling people douches, which is when the stock will completely crash.
