BP has successfully capped their leaking Gulf well, but spewing continues at a frightening rate on a range of other fronts.
More than 100 dogs, mainly Chihuahuas, were found in a Philadelphia home. Eyewitnesses said the floors were covered in nearly two feet of animal feces.
An investigation into the home began a year ago when neighbors complained of an overwhelming stench. City officials have condemned the home and deemed it uninhabitable.
In an unrelated dog-spewing incident, Rhode Island animal-control officers recently investigated a possible “pet hording” on Phebe Street. When a second story door was opened, the officers witnessed “a waterfall of dachshunds and Chihuahuas spilling down the stairs.” About 50 dogs, all but three of them of small breeds, were living in the single-family house. The depth of dog poop on Phebe Street was not released.
Meanwhile, pollsters say American voters are suffering from “Obama-spew”. The President trails Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, and is even tied with Sarah Palin. (It was not clear whether the President also trailed dachshunds and Chihuahuas.)
Palin-2-spew was being recorded in both Alaska and Hollywood, as First Mama Grizzly cub Bristol Palin announced her re-engagement to Levi Johnston. His claims to fame include impregnating teen-age Bristol and, after their ugly public split, posing for Playgirl magazine. As if this spew was not enough, rumors are circulating of a soon-to-be-announced reality TV show starring single teen mom Bristol and her Johnston.
Although vile, Palin-2-spew was not at press time considered a national emergency.
More worrying for the Obama Administration is a far more damaging “O-class” emergency – Oksana spew – which has choked the nation’s airways and sewers with vile Melfluent for weeks, with no end to the spewage in sight.
Administration and BP officials are considering whether a second and third cap – similar to the 75-ton cap used successfully in the Gulf – could be placed over the mouths of Oksana and Mel Gibson. But most experts think their spew will renew, worse than the dog-poo-spew, Obama-spew and Palin-2-spew.
