Default Do You Want to Buy a Closed Mine? (Musical)

Do You Want to Buy a Closed Mine?
Sung to the tune of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?"

(Ringing)

(voice of female MMCL executive)

Do you wanna buy a closed mine?
Our only buyer's prob'ly you
It's not profitable anymore
We've closed the doors
and now the bills are due
I'll send you our last budget
It might be shit
Please see what you Can-Doooo
Do you wanna buy a closed mine?
This mine is right next to North Fork Mine
K, thanks, bye

(Knocking)

(gruff voice of B. Wilder)

Do we wanna buy the closed mine?
We could start drilling through the walls
I think our company would really save
but we can't overpay
or you will take the fall!
It sounds a little risky
all these costs left over
What expenses will we accrue?
(sound of beans rhythmically dropping one by one)


(Orchestral)


(Knocking)

(voice of exasperated candidate)

Sir?
Please, I know you're in there
I've been working night and day
answering your questions, and I'm trying to
name the right price for you
Will we walk away?
Here's your memorandum
and enhanced spreadsheet
What are we gonna do?

Do you wanna buy a closed mine?

(sniffly exit)

If selected for grading, this probably has a higher chance of passing than 99% of all EOM1 submissions.

Solid, solid stuff. Bravo.

If you can't see why this is hilarious, you are well on your way to becoming a successful actuary.
