Retailing giant Target has been fined $120,000 for selling illegally-imported silly string that contained hydrochlorofluorocarbons, the propellant that was banned for damaging the ozone. What do you think?

"Sure the gases eat holes in the ozone layer, but a well-aimed blanket of silly string will patch it right up."
