Pay cuts, dodgy bank managers, inept government officials, doom gloom and apocalypse. Is there no escape from this ragout of despond? Yes, I say! Grab a couple of vegetables and stew up a hearty eyeful of spiritual nourishment. Tuck in, but keep an eye on your wallet.

I'm afraid I can't think of anything more jocular on this cold day, when our government and economic system is in disarray. When, once again, our captains have been shown to be either appallingly incompetent, or downright selfish nest-feathering usurers, without even the most fleeting of thoughts about their responsibilities to their employees, customers or country.

Whoops! I thought you'd found a spelling error in my post. Now I feel like a real numbnut!

Anyway, I'm glad it made you laugh. That's all you can do in the midst of all this collapse.
