It's time for us to stop thinking about fossil fuels as our world-turner. There's skyrocketing gas prices here due to the decisions we made to support dictators of oil-producing companies.  We here on the Gulf Coast are going to be feeling the repercussions of our thirst for oil and the greed of the oil oligarchy for a long, long time, and the shenanigans of BP shill Ken Feinberg aren't being bought by the majority of the affected Macondo oil disaster claimants.  It's time for a change, indeed.

I mean, look at this. We've been harvesting the liquid form of these for the past hundred years or so, and its gonna run out:

I am here to say, however, that I think I've discovered the one sea creature that can take being slathered in a viscous substance without too many ill effects taste-wise.  In fact, it could be considered an improvement over now-common tainted Gulf seafood:

Come join us this Mardi Gras - Tuesday, March 8th - if you're in the Lower Garden District.  Starting at approximately 7:30 AM or so, the Krewe of Pancakes and Syrup will be serving up our edible doubloons on the gray brick road.  It at least gives y'all a place to pee on Mardi Gras day while waiting on Zulu and Rex.  Act right and bring something else edible and/or imbibable if you wanna, or just stop by.
