Credit Crunch Severity Scale is new collection of graphic sound effects, and cringe making images to match, that can be used to calibrate the current financial crisis.

Examples of this would range in intensity from somewhere between a person biting down on a brazil nut with their bare teeth, or a ball- pein hammer impacting on a Rolls Royce windscreen right through to a train running into a cabinet full of cut crystal on a level crossing.

       Perhaps a few Hitler sound bites when it becomes apparent that our chancellor is less than ideal. Air raid sirens. Fingernails being dragged across a twenty mile long blackboard.   

       Perhaps if they become popular they may even help drag us out of the economic meltdown.
