Today's reading from The Good Book
"Milo had been caught red-handed in the act of plundering his countrymen, and, as a result, his stock had never been higher. He proved as good as his word when a rawboned major from Minnesota curled his lip in rebellious disavowal and demanded his share of the syndicate Milo kept saying everybody owned. Milo met the challenge by writing the words 'A Share' on the nearest scrap of paper and handing it away with a virtuous disdain that won the envy and admiration of virtually everyone who knew him."
I'm quite disappointed that someone more artistically gifted than me hasn't circulated a new look Northern Rock share certificate on the Internet yet - but the day is still young I suppose...
