                  The Troubled Aardvark
                      by Tom Annau

 Once upon a time, there was an aardvark whose only
 pleasure in life was driving from his suburban bungalow
 to his job at a large brokerage house in his brand new
 4x4. He hated his manipulative boss, his conniving and
 unethical co-workers, his greedy wife, and his
 snivelling, spoiled children. One day, the aardvark
 reflected on the meaning of his life and his career and
 on the unchecked, catastrophic decline of his nation,   [N E T S C A P E]
 its pathetic excuse for leadership, and the complete
 ineffectiveness of any personal effort he could make to
 change the status quo. Overcome by a wave of utter
 depression and self- doubt, he decided to take the only
 course of action that would bring him greater comfort
 and happiness: he drove to the mall and bought imported
 consumer electronics goods.

 Moral of the story: Invest in foreign consumer
 electronics manufacturers.
