Share and enjoy!

and don't forget to go stick your head in a pig.

thanks to Shuki Galili. If you're not lauging go and read Shuki's post.


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 show a consistent profit in recent years.

The motto stands—or 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 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 robots' voiceboxes 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
and 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!
