Wow, that was terrible. Sorry but thats all I had going through my head when i read the article, Thankfully I didnt go down the:

“I see them rolling
And I’m hatin
Cause my arm is
Caught up in the olive crusher
up in the olive crusher,
up in the olive crusher,
up in the olive crusher,
it is all
Caught up in the olive crusher…….

Sadly, I was even hoping for one of the protagonists to be called Pip.
