I scare myself

There's a convention in comedy sketches where a bunch of idiots do something really really expensive, and to keep the audience amused a little cash counter appears on screen, with numbers whizzing away.

Examples that spring to mind are when Bernard and Manny in 'Black Books' are drinking the £7,000 bottle of wine intended for the pope. Or in 'Young Persons Guide To Becoming A Rock Star' when the just-signed band don't realise just how much of their money the record company are spending on their behalf.

That came unbidden to mind when I found this fascinating and eminently clickable photostory of the renovation of a grand piano.

My wallet empathises.
