Mon Dieux!!!! Le Petrol est Cher!!! Sa M'effarouche!!!

The crazy things addicts do when the fix gets more expensive or scarce...

  • I missed it and haven't seen a video link yet (anyone got one for me?), but evidently Senator Pete Domenici found his longtime husband Big Oil in bed with another Senator, a woman and $2 billion yesterday. Ol' Petey's exclamation of "I just violated the rules!!!" in the Senate Chamber is definitely going in the great quote vault alongside "Snakes on the __________ plane!", "Is it because I'm a lesbian?" & "Mr. Pibb plus Red Vines equals crazy delicious!".
  • Since I don't have video, I do not know whether Ol' Petey was wearing a French police officer's uniform like Claude Rains was when he said "I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!" in Casablanca.
  • Meanwhile, all Americans are scrounging for French police officer's uniforms to get ready for our annual exclamation: "I am shocked, shocked that gasoline prices are going up just before our Summer Vacations!"
  • Let's face it, we're all shocked. Gas prices are going up, oil company executives have been making obscene salaries and bonuses, and various politicians have been knocking each over to get to microphones to talk about rebates, dependence on foreign oil and strategic reserve utilization. It's incredible! It's unbelievable! Is it because we're all lesbians?
  • Meanwhile, along the Maginot Line Bunker of Contrarians With Wacky Ideas, we Resistance fighters are keeping silent in our secret hope that gasoline goes to $6 a gallon. Going public with an exaclamation like that now will surely lead to being found out by the Gas is Every American Sacred Right Nazis and a trip to Berlin for "questioning".
  • How do you say "The Sky is Falling!" in French?
  • Speaking of French, thanks to the wife for the French above. Readers, please direct all corrections, whether they be English or French words, to her.
