No, no, it's no good pleading with me, Hank, you're fired ... sacked ... dismissed without a character! 'Lord Gradgrind' Duff is not a man to suffer the sort of dereliction of duty that is evident from your 'graph of graphs' on the presidential election without retaliation. I tipped McCain to win and ever since he has dropped in your wretched polls like a sky-diver without a parachute. It can't be my mistake because I am all-wise and all-knowing - so it must be you! Of course, before I make up your final wage packet I will be deleting the cost of a bottle of 12-year-old Macallan which it looks as though I will have to send to 'Fallen Monk' in November - and I was really looking forward to tasting his Jack Daniels. I think I'll go out and thrash a few peasants to put me in a better mood!
