There are many types of bonds and I had a bit too much creative time on my hands, so below I describe them in their boy equivalents. Click on the bold for the classic definitions.
Callable bond: His ex-girlfriend takes him back.
Corporate bond: The well dressed, business type that meets me on time unless the market is hurting.
Coupon bond: Without fail, I’m given gifts twice a year.
Discount bond: He is still hurting from his last relationship, but if I stick it out I could be one lucky lady.
Government bond: The young politico raising money to make the world a better place.
Premium bond: Top of the line trust funder.
Zero coupon bond: The type who gives no gifts, but I’m well-rewarded at the maturity.
