"I've seen it all" Or "Rock stars, is there anything they don't know?" (pt II)

I used that headline about a year ago, but it deserves a dusting off because of this tale from the National Post:

"Bjork is seeking investors for a venture-capital fund that aims to help kick-start the island nation's failed economy. Her eponymously named "BJÖRK (sic) Fund" will target investments in companies that create value through the "uniqueness" of Iceland’s nature and culture.

"Companies must be sustainable, both in terms of financial returns as well as being socially and environmentally responsible. BJÖRK (sic) is particularly interested in companies that exploit our well educated human capital and vibrant culture, new knowledge, new technology or a new approach to business."

Makes a change having a chanteuse advancing a capitalist position - after a fashion - but one does wonder quite how sold on her oeuvre one would have to be put money in a VC fund operated in her name. Although I doubt that she will be evaluating business plans, perhaps she will conclude that is a huge foreign market for fermented shark meat. I can only name a few of her songs, and she is not my cup of tea at all, so if anyone can come up with a high quality Bjork-related pun, they will be given headlining rights. Generous of me, huh? And Jonny Mac has offered up 'I've seen it all', which is both a Bjork song and ferociously apt.

Do I win a prize?

It's just human behaviour, really.

Jonny M was first to the punch, and so gets the rejigged headline and the thanks of a grateful blogger.

The usual offer of a pint to any of my regulars who find themselves in the Florence of South London stands. Well, it is the least I could do.

Logical position for her to take though.
