How will you cook without olive oil? Or what about whiskey, which noted southern politician Noah S. "Soggy" Sweat called the oil of conversation?!

While things return to normality (or some level of such) the already pumped oil can be channeled through normal processes and there would be time for the engineers to figure out how to get restarted. Maybe this is naive, but it seems to me that an opened bottle of champagne that's recapped doesn't lose all of its fizz. Well-head pressure could be capped.

But this is an internet forum and what the hell do I know.
Don't you think that big oil would ask for government backing to hire more engineers. As in economy shut down from virus? oops probably already are. I'm sure it is more important than 1 million out of work. It could be a factor of Nat'l defense. Also take money from that wall that is used to keep the crop pickers from feeding the poor workers out of work.
Can we get back to jokes-----Oh big oil really is a joke Just most don't get it . and those that do don't laugh

cheers,
Lots of variations on that one.

I first heard it from a friend who opened a boat building business.

Also a Belize variation: How do you make a million dollars in Belize? Arrive with 2 million!

See, it's not only Texans who brag!


Saved me from doing it, but in fairness to the Texans, Australian farms can often only support about one goat per hundred acres, so the size comparisons arenít all they seem to be.

Re: The New Joke Thread

And, of course, we know that NONE of them should be stocking hard-hoofed animals like sheep, goats and cattle, that destroy the vegetation and create erosion gullies that lead to topsoil loss and land degradation.

Kangaroos and camels is what we should be raising out there. Just catching them is a bugger....

Re: The New Joke Thread

Once upon a time, an Australian cowboy was in a hotel in New York City. He asked the bell cap to get him a woman.

As she approached the door, she heard rather a lot of noise coming from the room. She tapped on the door, and the Aussie answered, and got back to what he was doing. He struggled with it, but he got the wardrobe out through the window, which broke in the process, and now he was wrestling the bed towards the window!

"Stop!" she cried, "Aren't we going to need that?!"

"Well, I don't know much about women, but if they're like kanagroos, we're gonna need all the room we can get!"
