Oil Spill News

Wednesday, June 2nd 2010 by Pat

Fake news. It’s exactly the same as the real news but slightly less absurd.

I want to make more of these but I’ve got too much work this next week and then I’m heading out to my cabin until the end of the month.

I guess the oil spill will still be here when I get back… that’s depressing.

Really, why don’t they just drop a giant boulder on the thing? Bill Nye the Science Guy says we need one that weighs about 6000 tons.

    I’m glad the authorities finally nabbed Jamie Karnik, btw, he’s been doing that for years.

    Nothing’s ever been proven, Gage, and I’ll be suing you for libel and/or slander as soon as I can remember what the difference is between the two. And for the record, I plead ‘no contest’ to those charges and agreed to do some Scared Straight outreach to kids, but of course the media has to go and make a big deal out of it.

    Great work, fellas, and I’m…I guess ‘honored’ is the word for making the ticker.
