I managed to bear most of the elevator version of "Roxanne", about 30
seconds of the hillbilly version of "White Wedding", and about 10
seconds of the pensioner's bingo-night out version of "Creep", before
feeling like a Japanese POW under torture.

I'd actually pay Microsoft if they'd promise to withdraw this product,
take it out the back of Redmond HQ, and shoot it with Joachim Kempin's
antelope rifle.
