They can, because they know how to strike fear in the hearts of us unknowing lay-people. They don't even have to use words; it's assumed that if you don't get this or that expensive test or procedure done... YOU'RE GONNA DIE!

A Corporation Bra

Cars and ladies both wear bras,
Abercrombie led the cause
to harness up our babes and nubies,

More than a handful is a waste.
You sell crayons, I'll sell paste.
We can do it up on our own lands,
free of interest penalty lawyer demands.

Big torpedo boobies squash
you to the wall into ganache!
