Crude. OIL, That Is...


I'm busy.

Or...

I'm tired.

Or...

I'm gradually developing "Blogger-blogger Apathy."

Take your pick.

Whatever the reason, this blog's taken a very low priority in the general scheme of things lately.

So it goes.

Having said that: Since I haven't posted anything in over a week, in lieu of any new stories... or any new Sepia Saturday entries... or any pithy comments in the "David'Z RantZ" vein -- although in that latter instance, "pithed-off" might be more appropriate -- I'm going to leave you with two related videos from the (occasional?) Australian comedy team of John Clarke and Bryan Dawe. The first is on the subject of the BP oil "spill" situation. ("Spill" seems to be a stupid, inadequate way to describe what's actually happening in the Gulf of Mexico, though, dunnit?)


(Hey! They stole my "Thanks for your time" sign-off!)

The above routine was actually based on a sketch by the same team from 1991, when a similar situation developed closer to (their) home. I think this one's even funnier.


Yup, there's a lot of publicity about this disastrous, ongoing calamity. Hell, even Pleasantview, Alabama's own Dewey Mellen -- that idiot -- has finally heard about it!

Thanks for your time.

  1. Hey! Once you have gotten us "hooked" on your blog postings you CAN NOT just slack off like this! (I lead a very lonely life, ya know?!) We need you to post...it doesn't HAVE to be Shakespear every day!

  2. You could spend your "off time" visiting me, Fox. You are always welcome over on my blog.

    As for me, I'm finally getting rested up from my big trip. Although... some more naps on the sofa seem very enticing....

  3. Would have commented about the oil... but it really breaks my heart. Born and reared right on the Gulf of Mexico - and knowing how beautiful it is... can't stand to think of it covered in oil...

  6. Man, you've really screwed up again! I like to be entertained with your original writing. If I wanted to watch YoTube I'd watch YoTube. Please give me original stuff. So sad...

  7. @Paul: Nag.

    @AngelMay: I have been visiting your blog, and (finally) leaving comments, too. Heck, if I didn't love ya (and not just for your sultry profile photo), you never would have received my "Thrust Home" award. By the way, weren't you going to send me an email, or did I misunderstand your "we will talk" comment?

    @Sharpie: For what this blog pays, dude... suck it up. And that's a cool new profile photo. Anyone ever tell you you remind them of Ernie on My Three Sons? And by the way... How are you coming with the "Carla" mystery over on the Simpson/Lynch Studios blog?

  8. Are you really going to just let them steal your "Thanks for your time" line? The Foxter must stand up to the fleecers.

  9. The Mister had seen both of these already. Very funny..and very well done. :)

    I can't believe you didn't copyright that phrase! I sent you the website, afterall! ;)

  10. @Ronda and Betsy: Yeah, I think I'd have just as good a chance making that phrase mine and mine alone as Fox News had with "Fair and Balanced." ;-)

  11. Whenever I visit my uncle, he always says "thanks for your time," and then I know he wants me to go home.
