The Price of Joy, as text.

A man came to the door with an itemized bill for $86,100.50 and said that I needed to pay for all the happy experiences I have had (minus deductions for the unhappy experiences I have had) I said that I thought that joy should be free. He said that joy required work and commitment and effort, or it would be meaningless. I demanded that he prove his authenticity. He said that "Video Killed the Radio Star" (by The Buggles) had killed the radio star. I said that was impossible, because video had already killed "Video Kiled the Radio Star." He sighed and admitted that he was just going door to door trying to trick people out of eighty grand.

I guess I showed him I was nobody's fool.
