Consider:

"It is better to be drunk with loss and to beat the ground, than to let the deeper things gradually escape."

- I. Compton-Burnett, letter to Francis King (1969)

"Cynical realism – it is the intelligent man’s best excuse for doing nothing in an intolerable situation."

- Aldous Huxley, "Time Must Have a Stop"

I know this is tasteless, but it is interesting.

Ad won't feature Cash's 'Ring'
From Associated Press, February 18, 2004
Advertising writers in Florida were planning to pitch hemorrhoid-relief products with a commercial featuring the Johnny Cash classic "Ring of Fire," but Cash's family said there's no way they will let it happen.

"We would never allow the song to be demeaned like that," Cash's daughter, Rosanne, told the Tennessean of Nashville.

The hit was written by Cash's wife, June Carter Cash, and Merle Kilgore, now Hank Williams Jr.'s manager. Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash died in 2003.

TV producer Sula Miller of Big Grin Productions in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., said she thought of the idea when she heard the song on the radio while struggling with the uncomfortable condition.

Kilgore said at first he thought the idea was funny. Cash's family didn't.
But it is curiously funny, isn't it?
