VIDEO: A bust for Blockbuster

Pictures of Colin Powell, Blockbuster, salmon and a recession sign

The people who have the profession
of declaring we're out of recession,
Waited more than a year
to sound the all-clear.
"Tinker's dam" -- is that the expression?

Blockbuster's finally going bust,
after years of eating Netflix dust.
They acknowledge their business model was wrong.
Let's charge them a late fee for waiting so long.

The FDA has begun to examine
the worth of genetically-modified salmon:
Is it a cynical industry scam and
a threat, or a way to alleviate famine?

And Colin Powell says let's not grouse
about illegal workers -- they fix my house.
I mean... houses of people other than me.
