There's always free cheddar in a mousetrap

Tom Waits' song God's Away On Business (co-written with his wife Kathleen Brennan), from his 2002 album Blood Money, also features on the closing credits of director Alex Gibney's 2005 documentary, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room. The track is a rude burst of nightmarish energy that captures the film viewer's bubbling outrage at the shameless and amoral criminality of Enron's deceivers-in-chief. And the video features emus and stilts, so you can't go wrong, really.
