The Ballad of Jed Clamp-it

Come and listen to my story
'Bout the ol’ BP
A poor company,
Drillin’ profits in the sea.
And then one day
Left a safety cap unscrewed,
And up from the floor came a-bubblin' crude.

Oil, that is,
Black gold,
Texas tea.

Well the first thing you know
The Gulf’s a full a’ murk,
Spin folk say, “That gizmo didn’t work!
Said, “Haliburton is the guy you outta see.”
So they loaded up with bucks
And they moved to DC.

Congress, that is,
Swimming pools,
Movie stars.

Well now it's time to say
Goodbye to them and all their spin,
Which they would like to thank
You folks for kindly swallowin’.
You're all invited back soon to vacation by the sea
And smell a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality.

Oil-billie, that is,
Bend over,
Take your shoes off.

Y’all come back now, y’hear!

Nicely done , oh music man. I would slip in a picture of Dick Cheney with the Halliburton reference, if available.

Hey el Dufus

I thought this was a Yankee blog. The only oil you should be blathering about is the stuff on Thames hands last night.

el duque ... very nicely done. I am an occasional visitor to this blog with no real dogs in the fight of insanity and inane minutia that drives you Yankee stalwarts crazy. And Sterling and his grotesque sidekick ... thankfully I live on the west coast and don't have to listen ...

But I do appreciate all efforts at satire and political commentary. The times we now live in - require it - so keep it up! P.S. - I miss AHOY!

I'm with Animus, we Yankee fans live in a vacuum.
