Those college kids in the NCAA may be back to hitting the books, but here in the WCIA octagon, competing companies are still hitting busy hitting each other below the belt en route to the title of Worst Company In America!
Kicking off this third round of match-ups are two tournament regulars, Bank of America and Walmart.
So far, BofA has looked like a WCIA dream team, embarrassing all comers in the earlier rounds. First, the one-time Golden Poo recipient made Citi look silly, earning over 80% of the vote. And the competition just got easier in the second round when BofA smacked DirecTV upside the head with one of its own dishes.
Walmart, which has been absent from the Elite 8 since losing out to AIG in 2009, hasn’t had as easy a go of it as Bank of America, but the Retail Rumbler didn’t break too much of a sweat when it threw GameStop into the Red Ring of Death and then killed Delta’s dog to make it to the Elite 8.
Which one of these companies deserves to make it to the Final Four?
This poll is now closed. Congrats to BofA on making the Final Four!
