Totally unoriginal entry time

Because there's never a wrong time to quote a large chunk of Douglas Adams at the world:

"Share and Enjoy" is, of course, the company motto of the hugely successful Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Complaints division, which now covers the major land masses of three medium sized planets and is the only part of the Corporation to have shown a consistent profit in recent years.

The motto stands - or rather stood - in three mile high illuminated letters near the Complaints Department spaceport on Eadrax - "Share and Enjoy". Unfortunately its weight was such that shortly after it was erected, the ground beneath the letters caved in and they dropped for nearly half their length through the underground offices of many talented young complaints executives - now deceased. The protruding upper halves of the letters now appear, in the local language, to read "Go stick your head in a pig", and are no longer illuminated, except at times of special celebration.

At these times of special celebration a choir of over two million robots sing the company song "Share and Enjoy". Unfortunately - again - another of the computing errors for which the company is justly famous means that the robot's voices are exactly a flattened fifth out of tune and the result sounds something like this:

Share and Enjoy, Share and Enjoy
Journey through life with a plastic boy
Or girl by your side, let your pal be your guide
And when it breaks down or starts to annoy
Or grinds when it moves and gives you no joy
Cos it's eaten your hat or had sex with your cat
Bled oil on your floor or ripped off your door
You get to the point you can't stand any more
Bring it to us, we won't give a fig
We'll tell you, 'Go stick your head in a pig'.

...only slightly worse.


Just be grateful I didn't actually link to an mp3 of the song... :o)
