Dave!  I'm SHOCKED!  How ... subversively UN-AMERICAN of you!

Seriously, I can think of no occupation on Earth that legitimately
deserves an annual salary involving eight, or even seven, digits ahead

can make it more cost-effective to use banknotes as toilet paper than to
go out and spend them to buy the stuff.]
