Let's get rid of phrases like "Top Kill", "Cut and Cap", "Lower Marine Riser Package" and "Blowout Preventer" and use our own descriptions, shall we? We should use phrases like "Today's attempt doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of working." How about "We're up to our asses in alligators and we're can't stop this mess until the new relief wells are finished in August."
Just once, I'd like to hear someone say, "BP officials are weasels and are too busy looking for legal loopholes than to worry about stopping the oil leak. President Obozo doesn't have the slightest idea of what to do and every attorney in the nation has stopped ambulance chasing and have moved their yachts to the Gulf to round up as many potential lawsuits as their greedy little hands can find."
Take the stupid continual video feed of the gushing oil leak and put on something else until the problem is resolved. I've watched them continue to fail for weeks and methinks they have no idea how to stop it until the relief wells are finished. Frankly, I'm disgusted with BP, President Obozo and all the other ass kissing flunkies give me their daily report of why they failed. But, that's just me....
Which leads me to this: This video kinda sums up my frustrations and saves me many pages of typing. I guess it's true that a picture is worth a thousand words (Remember to mute my music playlist on my sidebar). The News As I See It: President Obozo flew to Louisiana to see the Gulf cleanup effort firsthand. And it was just like President George "Dubya" Bush’s trips to Louisiana – except Obozo actually landed. Obozo called the Gulf Coast oil spill an assault on our shores and their people. Then he said the same thing about fat dudes in speedos.
The list of the world’s best airlines just came out, and not a single American airline made it in the top 10. You know who was really surprised by this news? No one.
An American adventurer strapped himself to a bunch of helium balloons and floated from England to France. Immediately afterwards, people in Mexico asked "Exactly how many balloons?"

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) Be careful of your thoughts, they may become words at any moment. 2) Hurricanes are like women. When they come, they're wet and wild, but when they leave they take your house and car. 3) The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits. 4)Constipated people don't give a crap. 5) Sex is the only activity where you start at the top and work your way to the bottom, while getting a raise.....and that's five !

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar and Grill: The husband was always putting off mowing the lawn in favor of watching sports and television. One evening upon arriving home, he found his wife cutting the grass with a pair of scissors. Understanding her clever attempt to make a point, he walked into the garage, then returned with a toothbrush and handed it to his wife.
She asked, "What's this for?" He answered, "So you can sweep the grass off the driveway when your finished cutting the lawn." The doctors say he will walk again, but he'll always have a limp !
After a week of marriage, Mississippi newlyweds, Harold and Arlene, went to see their family doctor. Harold said, "You ain't gonna believe this, Doc, but my "thingy's" turnin' purple." The doctor replied, "That's pretty unusual, let me examine you."
The doctor examines Harold and, sure enough, his "thingy" is definitely purple. The doctor turns to Arlene and asks, "Are you using the diaphragm that I prescribed for you?" Arlene replies, "Yes sir, I shore am." The doctor says, "And what kind of jelly are you using?" Arlene responds, "Grape." The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A father watched his young daughter playing in the garden in their Wyoming ranch. He smiled as he reflected on how sweet and pure his little girl was.
He thought about her seeing the wonders of nature through such innocent eyes. Suddenly, she just stopped and stared at the ground. He went over to her to see what work of God had captured her attention. He noticed she was looking at two spiders mating.
She asked,"Daddy,what are those two spiders doing?" Her father replied, "They're mating." The little girl said, "What do you call the spider on top?" The father answered, "That's a Daddy Longlegs."
The little girl asked, "So,the other one is a Mommy Longlegs?" As his heart soared with the joy of such a cute and innocent question, he replied "No dear, both of them are Daddy Longlegs."
The little girl, looking a little puzzled, thought for a moment, then took her foot and stomped them flat and said, "Well, we're not having any of that Brokeback-Mountain shit in our garden." An attractive blonde sits down next to a man at a bar who is watching the evening news. There is coverage of a man who is threatening to jump off a bridge. The man says to the blonde, "I'll bet you $50 that the man jumps." The blonde responds, "Ok, I bet that he doesn't jump." No sooner does the words leave her mouth, the man jumps to his death.
The blonde reaches into her purse, takes out $50 and extends it to the man. The man smiles and says, "I can't take your money." The blonde says, "Why not?" The man replies, "Because, I watched this on the twelve o'clock news."
The blonde says, "I watched the twelve o'clock new as well, but I didn't think he would jump again."
After three weeks in the Garden of Eden, God came to visit Eve and said, "So, how's it going?" Eve said, "It's beautiful, God. Everything is so serene and wonderful. I do have one problem. It's these three breasts you gave me." God said, "Yeah, I know. I thought you'd like them."
Eve said, "That's just it, I don't like them. The middle one pushes the other two outward and when I walk, they get in the way, they snag things, they're a real pain." God said, "Well, I'm kinda new at this. I gave the other animals six breasts and I thought you'd only need half that amount. But, I see your point and I take care of that." With that, God removed the middle breast and threw it into the bushes.
Three weeks later, God returned to speak with Eve. "So, hows my favorite creation?" Eve said, "Just fine except for one minor oversight on your part. All the other animals are paired up except me. Ya know it get's kinda lonely." God said, "You know, you right! How could I have overlooked that. I will take a part from your body and create Man. Where's that useless boob I threw away?"
