Amazing how cute kitties can explain everything…even the BP oil spill

Somehow, this doesn’t seem all that far from the truth, except that kitties are cute.

The last line, however, is, sadly, all too prescient-sounding. In fact, I’m not sure that it’s even funny because the truth hurts. I guess cute kitties make it easier to take. I wonder if they ever remade A Few Good Men with kittens.

(Warning: One NSFW word near the end.)

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.

In a year or two or three, when the lawsuits pile up and BP begins fighting every demand with armies of lawyers, people will be shocked, SHOCKED!, that BP is trying to weasel out of its stated obligations.

I’ve seen this movie, I know how it ends.

Ive had just about enough of your weasel bashing, Sir!


Right now I wish we could have a “Hitler responds to the BP oil spill”.

(Coincidentally, yesterday I perused,”Asking Awkward Questions with Baby Animals” and “Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals”!) The clip confirms what I’ve always suspected: tabby kittehs are *slightly* less evil than the other varieties.

Right now I wish we could have a “Hitler responds to the BP oil spill”.

Loss control materials are occasionally “crap”. I remember putting in a list of them in a database once upon a time and chuckling because “walnut shells” was on there.

The petroleum engineers assured me that was only the tip of the iceberg. Golf balls are used as are things like fishing nets to stop things from coming out of the hole.
