Mr Madoff's Ponzi scheme. Pardon ?
As one will notice, I have nothing of interest whatsoever to add to the current financial crisis. Capitalism is wallowing in its own unstrained faecal material and yet it is still managing to sell us its effluent in an unparalleled yuletide binge.
Meanwhile, Carla is suing Pardon. She is probably upset because they didn't pay for the image, unlike the original that sold for a song earlier this year. Look if one flaunts one's parts in public the public will flaunt one's parts too. Of course, Pardon is just another cynical company selling supposedly trendy and expensive garb to us chavs.
This is all (all!) happening at the same time as the volcano is having a little eruption. The BBC seem fit to put Carla before Kalle. The former appears on the front page, the latter merely a photo. Unfortunately, the BBC is pandering more and more to the chavering classes who admire those who are newsworthy merely for being rich, naked, spoilt and on public display.
Should, Pardon wish to put my naked image on their bags my fee will be a lot less than Carla's legal fees. Perhaps that will make me famous and then I can be a buffoon on Strictly come Dancing. You can own a life size inflatable voodoo doll of me - complete with non pointy pins. And I shall no longer be unemployed. The BBC will have to pay more.
Failing that, I shall keep my contract with vogue and go into hiding up a mountain overlooking the sea. It is here that I shall write my memoires about all those famous people I have never not had the misfortune not to meet.
Back in fantasy land a certain Mr Madoff and his Ponzi scheme has made a laughing stock of not only the financial system but also all the pathetic attempts of governments to convince us that the system is worth saving. Is it surprising that car manufacturers are having a hard time? Having never bought a new car I couldn't give an aardvarks foreskin. Back in the eighties it was argued that disarmament would put people out of work so logically, we had to continue killing people so that other people could work to buy new cars to destroy the environnment in order to kill more people and generally screw up the lives of future generations.
The hot rock is busy trying to convince itself that it can present a sustainable face to the world. The "first" electric car has become available today at a mere 16,000 € ( the equivalent to a billion pounds by now or 56789 billion zim dollars). The first potential buyer stated that he was going to buy one for his wife to do the shopping and take the kids to school. WTF!!!!! Of course, Mr Macho wouldn't be seen driving around in a car that didn't make a brmmm brmmmm noise he needs a real car ... or viagra.
Look just stop buying things. Not only can you not buy happiness you certainly cannot buy your way out of an environmental crisis nor a financial one. The former because that is what caused the crisis and the latter solely because it is a nightmare and does not partake of material reality.
