What’s an Enron?

‘Do the younger generation know nothing, ’TS grumbled into our Horlicks the other night (we forget which night, but at our age we forget so much). While tapping out our pipe and warming our slippers by the hearth, a learned colleague told us of the MBA lecturer who recently asked his class who remembered what had happened at Enron. Apparently only a quarter of the ‘students’ put up their hands. Disgusted, we began complaining to colleagues about the money we lost in the South Sea Bubble– only to be met with blank expressions and cries of: ‘Put your teeth in when you’re sucking on a Werther’s Original.’ Nurse! It’s time for my shot.
