Alka-Seltzer, Al Capone, or ET Phone Home.

Nor is it the fault of M. Ahmedinejad or his half-brother James Dean-ejad, and it's certainly not the fault of the 'hedge fund hyenas', or Carlos 'the jackal', nor is it Jacques Brel, hair gel, the Eurotrash or Eurozone, the Marxists, the Feminists

Not only is it not the fault of George Bush, Obama/Biden and Osama Bin Laden, M Ghadaffi or Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Yosemite Sam, Sam I Am, Green Eggs and Ham and Dr Seuss, Hercules and the Mighty Zeus, the Centaur Newton eating 'Fig Newtons', or 'figgy pudding' and Bing Crosby, Jello Pudding and Bill Cosby, Sydney Crosby or Sydney Poitier, the Sydney Opera House, or The House of Wax with Vincent Price, playing the role of 'Egghead' in Batman with Adam West, or Mae West, or the 'May Day' parade.

The problem is: those godless 'Black Friday' hoards of contemptuous and gluttonous 'consumers' grabbing anything and everything they can get their greedy little hands on, without care or conscience of consequence, discarding all dignity whilst attempting in vain to landfill the vast wasteland of their empty and wretched existence.
