“So what are you looking pleased as punch about?” Amadeus Emanon asked Renfield R. Renfield as the latter sat at his computer grinning away like a Cheshire cat.

“I’ve been thinking,” Renfield couldn’t keep the grin off his face, “that if this News of the World phone hacking scandal continues to deepen, the Boss might be able to pick up the remains of Rupert Murdoch’s news empire at bargain basement prices and he’ll naturally name me the head of this new news empire and I shall use it to control the world.”

“There’s a dreadful thought,” Amadeus saw such a future and knew it wouldn’t work for humanity.

“So hopefully the Murdoch empire will go down, down, down,” said Renfield, “and we shall pick up the pieces.”

“But you’ve hacked into other people’s phones and computers on numerous occasions yourself, haven’t you?” Amadeus asked.

“Yes, but there’s a difference between me and Rupert Murdoch’s reporters in that,” Renfield answered.

“What’s that?” Amadeus asked.

“I’ve never been caught,” Renfield stuck out his chest proudly.
