DONG is the quasi-public Danish oil and natural gas company. And the country is in an uproar because Goldman Sachs is about to get part ownership. In fact, the Danish government is near collapse over the issue.

The people really feel violated by those Wall Street pricks messing with their Dong. First Goldman tried to slip it in, now they are pushing hard, and the people of Denmark are afraid of a financial cock-up, as often happens when people start dicking around where they shouldn’t. Indeed, they fear they will get the shaft if this deal doesn’t have a barrier erected.

Sounds like the morning after could be pretty ugly.
