SpongeBob Squarepants

Sham Wow..... Brilliant!

A giant Tampon! Kotex~ get right on this.

When all else fails ~ call Acme &Wile E Coyote

Ridiculous as these may seem, not any less crazy than the current BP plan.

President Obama is besotted by the authority Tony Hayward and BP have come to represent in the capping and clean up effort.

Maybe it began when Obama's daddy left, leaving him to be raised by a single parent? Who knows?

But the question I have for Team Obama is, what happens if the relief wells fail?

Experts now say the well casing is completely destroyed. Unless I'm missing something, this means there are two choices ahead:

1. let the well run dry in 15 to 20 years

2. detonate an atomic bomb in the well and melt the rock, sealing it

It's a tragedy of epic proportions and beyond belief that Obama's team really trusted BP to do the right thing in the beginning.

I don't know, I am floored that the industry was able to fight for more of the same (deep water drilling & the judge with a financial portfolio loaded w big oil ruled in favor of the industry.

As for the Federal judge..... looks like Mother Nature has something to say about it---throw some hurricanes their way & shut the whole thing down.

Go watch the video Dada posted....

BP is already cutting back & cutting corners.

I don't know, but thankfully the nuke option was announced as officially being off the table. (Treaties & such, besides being crazy toxic dangerous).

Sorry for the shameless blog whoring but former President Bill Clinton said what we've all either thought or expressed: blow the oil well up and stop this insanity.

Shades of Katrina? And then there's the story (at of the Dutch offer to send their best technology (said to be far superior to anything the US or BP has) in response to the "leak" that was declined by our government (much as post Katrina aid was nixed by us also).

To the chagrin of whom? Well, I imagine to the chagrin (and anger) of most Gulf residents now breathing the air and living amidst the oil and tar of our worst ecological disaster ever.

As for our gov't, however, I'm not sure the really get it (or if they do), don't really give a sh*t.

ok maybe we could accomplish a two-fer with an atomic tampon?

Fran said...

Dada: Color me chagrinned.

DK ~ It just may come to that!

Nonnie~ I remember Diver Dan... Clutch Cargo & is dog paddlefoot!

Fran said...

Nonnie! I went to the link & this brought up all these memories...

The characters included Diver Dan and Miss Minerva, the Captain (heard but not seen), and a puppet cast including the villainous Baron Barracuda, his henchman Trigger (a trigger fish), Finley Haddock, Doc Sturgeon, Georgie Porgy, Gabby the Clam, Gill Espy, Glow Fish, Goldie the Goldfish (who spoke only in peeps and squeaks), Hermit Crab, Sam the Sawfish, Scout Fish, Sea Biscuit the Seahorse and Skipper Kipper.
One of the running gags in the series was for Trigger to refer to the Baron as "Boss", at which the Baron would get angry and say some variation of, "Call me Baron, you idiot!" — to which Trigger would reply, "Okay, Baron you idiot".
Baron Barracuda wore a monocle in one eye, and spoke in a vaguely European accent; he sounded like a Bela Lugosi "Dracula" imitation. Trigger always had an apparently unlit cigarette jutting from the side of his mouth and sounded a bit like "Ed Norton" from The Honeymooners.

One could easily adapt the BP scene to the Diver Dan format.

You go Queen of photoshop!

Yuppers, that entire scenario is such bullshit.
