And it burns, burns, burns, that ring of fire

The Telegraph reports that "the family of the late Johnny Cash is outraged at a plan to use his 1963 classic song, Ring of Fire, to promote a haemorrhoid ointment." (You can tell it's a London-based paper. Is there any more British phrase than "haemorrhoid ointment"?)

I've personally been speculating about the possibilities of this for years, but as it turns out, I'm not that original. In fact, Johnny Cash himself often joked about this, and in concert, would often dedicate the song to the makers of Preparation H.
