"B Ark" as in Golgafrinchan B Ark from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
I have long maintained that Marketeers, rather than money, are the root of all evil.
B Ark fodder, the lot of em.

"Hello? Mr Bank Manager? Oh, Hi. Look, I've got into a spot of bother and need to borrow some money please." "Weeeellllll, about $1.5M should cover it". "Monthly income you say? Hmmm, well, I don't actually have a job at the moment, but my outgoings are really low...Hello...? Hello...?"
