Brought to You by Mercury

I'm up late watching a History Channel documentary about an ancient Chinese emperor who gave himself mercury poisoning while attempting to make himself immortal. They showed the emperor collapsing and spilling his elixir across the table in front of him. Queue dramatic music. Cut to commercial: "This history program has been brought to you in part by Mercury." Of course, they meant the car maker, not the mad maker, but their timing couldn't have been better.

I wonder if they even noticed...
