How about a pre-French Revolution script ...

   BBC staff set on Reg and saw his head off.
ANIMATION: Reg's head starts off by being thrown into picture.
Animation leads to an oak panelled, Civil Service committee room. A politician is addressing three officals.

Politician   Gentlemen, our MP saw the PM this AM and the PM wants more LSD from the PIB by tomorrow AM or PM at the latest. I told the PM's PPS that AM was NBG so tomorrow PM it is for the PM nem. con. Give us a fag or I'll go spare. Now, the fiscal deficit with regard to the monetary balance, the current financial year excluding invisible exports, but adjusted of course for seasonal variations and the incremental statistics of the fiscal and revenue arrangements for the forthcoming annual budgetary period terminating in April.
Somewhere in there you should insert the words "financial instruments."  It doesn't matter where, just about anywhere.  I always laugh when I hear some talking head say, "This, and other financial instruments."  It sounds so much more refined that "stack of poker chips."

Given that I was on a cell phone and in the hospital I thought I did pretty good to get a readable copy up there.
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

Hope you weren’t a patient, but if so, hope all is well. Can’t afford to lose our resident curmudgeon. 😉
