Re: The laying on of hands

Well, speaking as one who actually has had to fly from London to Helsinki with 30 minutes' notice to replace a cartridge in a laser printer ("HM Ambassador needs the placeholders printed out tonight, if this does not happen it will be YOU whom I blame and it will be in writing. Get .. it .. done"), I can testify that sometimes all you need to do is to:

1) Switch off the printer

2) Take out the laser cartridge.

3) Whisper gently to the printer .. "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet" works well.

4) Put the cartridge back into the printer.

5) Restart printer

Cost to HMG of 1 business class return London to Helsinki? Over £3000

The look on the idiot's face when his ambassador got the bill sent to him: Priceless
