This was excelente. I was just waiting for someone from the federal cleaning agency to show up at any moment

Worth sharing...made me smile.

No Obama jokes?

Someone walking in, saying "I'm in charge" and talking tough, then walking out again.

If Bush was President the whole thing would have been Bush gags, without any of the other allusions.

Lem said...

that was good... lol

makes me think that maybe I'm 'too close' to the spill ;)

Obama is the one who's F'd, when his problems are comedy.

remember at the beginning, the comedians didnt see any way to make fun of the most capable, smartest, blackest President evah?

well Obama lost his halo, he's dead meat now...

But where was Barack the Magic (you know) taking campaign cash from them and refusing to do anything material to help, just pointing the finger of blame after giving BP awards?

El Presidente said...

I was anticipating comedy.

I thought it was funny, but not really "biting satire". It doesn't work as a "parable". When the guy pulls out a roll of paper towels and sketches the cup lifter, well, duh, he should have used the towel to mop up the spill.

Its not at all the case that some simple cheap solution like a towel exists.

Mildly amusing but would have been terrific had it included Barry moving in to "kick some ass."

Pogo said...

Funny, but too afraid to mock BHO.

Alex said...

They really should have had Barry come in at the end to "kick ass".

Agree that the feds were the one missing piece.

I would imagine someone representing the feds standing in the corner continually shouting.

You better fix this up, pronto, or else... or else...or else... I start shouting REALLY loud

lemondog said...

Eh. Not very funny.

Should have had BO walking in with teleprompter and his 'kick ass' thing and Biden carrying a couple of pelicans under arm followed by a group of British Tories yelling at BO to knock off his rhetoric causing BP shares to plunge into bankruptcy all while attempting to cold-cock him a bust of Churchill, then sun-glassed secret service piling in followed regally by Queen Elizabeth with furs and crown using her scepter to smash the unrulies over the head while requesting they all sit to discuss over beer

Very funny! The opening shot of the BP building, in the beginning, is the BP HQ here in Anchorage, AK.
