Sadly Not That Kind Of Collapse

Don't tell me I'm the only one who clicked on MSN and saw the headline "Icelandic Government Collapses," followed by the word "Video," and thought, "Oh my God, how many people were crushed to death by massive sheets of ice in the ensuing destruction?" After only a couple of moments I realized, "Oh...they meant the collapse of the governmental coalition, not the collapse of an actual building. Oops, my bad." Honestly, I was expecting to see video footage of Icelandic politicians dodging humongous crystal slabs a la Marlon Brando in the first Superman. Otherwise, what kind of footage was it really going to be? Just some guy in a suit talking policy? Lame.
