Broken Crockery Fallacy

Help end the recession; break some stuff:
Stressed workers are flocking to The Venting Place in Tokyo where they pay to hurl crockery against a concrete wall in a bid to ease recession-related angst.

Katsuya Hara, who leads a team of chiropractors operating the therapy, said: "To break something, as all of us know from experience, is something extremely exhilarating and it helps bring down pent-up anger. We hope to become the new way businessmen and women relieve their stress."

Anxious visitors choose the crockery they would like to destroy, ranging from 200 yen (£1.40) for a small cup to 1,000 yen (£7.40) for a larger plate-smashing dish.
