PRINTER INK TOPS…… $1,000 A BARREL !

    Printer ink tops $1000 a barrel
    The
    grim economic picture darkened further today with news that the price
    of ink for printer cartridges has reached an all time high of $1000 a
    barrel on the New York futures exchange. The world’s most traded
    commodity has seen a steady rise in price over recent months due to
    supply problems, increased demand from China and a failure of consumers
    to send their empty cartridges to the charity recycling centre and just
    leaving them in their desk drawer instead.The computer industry urged
    the public not to panic and to only print out essential documents while
    they set about finding alternative ways for children to get
    colouring-in pictures that they print out from the Disney website. In
    some parts of the world, people are having to print out documents in
    blue or even green ink, continually having to pause to over-ride the
    irritating instruction from their bleeping printer to change the black
    ink cartridge.

    A statement from Hewlett Packard conceded that
    much of the increased cost may have to be passed on to the consumer
    claiming, ‘It’s only right and fair that computer printing ink and
    peripherals suppliers sustain their profits in this area to fund
    further research…’ The rest of the statement was illegible as the print
    became too faint.So dependent is the global economy on printer ink,
    that there are concerns that the United States may take military action
    against crude ink producers in the Middle East unless the situation
    improves. ‘You know what the invasion of Iraq was really about, don’t
    you?’ said Spike Harris of the Stop the War Coalition. ‘Printer ink,
    yeah! PresidINK Bush is in the pay of the big ink companies, and the
    whole lot of ‘em have got blood on their hands. And black ink
    obviously.’
