I don't know squat about humanity, but I'd say the Queen Mum fit
Bucky's challenge more than the proprietor of my local neighbourhood
snake-oil-and-vitamin shack.  I'd even consider that Britney Spears
has in fact given her midrift to momentarily ease the life of each
fan, providing (if nothing else) that moment of hope which can make
the success/failure difference.
