Martin Billings, an unimaginative 23-year-old is disappointed that he can't buy a Pink Floyd album for his Dad this year.

Over the years Shane Billings has been gradually filling his shelves with albums by the prog rock band, that his son has been buying for him.

'Those selfish gonads, Pink Floyd, have not released anything new this year, so I am a bit stumped for a present this year. I could buy him something else, but where would the tradition be in that?'

'Honestly' said Shane, 'I really couldn't care less. I only put them on the shelf at Christmas; I never play them. Now, Bachman Turner Overdrive have a few albums out. Maybe I should start dropping hints to him.'

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
