Those Puppy Dog Eyes

Hey, uh, GM. So, this credit thing, the bailout thingy, and this running out of money thing? Well, so... I'm not sure quite how to bring this up with you, but... we're going to need payment from you up front from now on. What? Don't look at me like that. We really can't afford to be financing you and your counterparty credit risk is just... huge. What? Counterparty... Cee... Oh... You... En... look, just nevermind. Cash on the barrel. That's the deal. What? Patriotic? You've got to be kidding. Don't pull that. Ok, stop looking at me like that I said.
