Gas: It’s America’s Crack! (video from “Mrs. Betty Bowers”)

Eventually I HAD to post a video from the wild “Mrs. Betty Bowers, America’s Best Christian.” Finally, one that doesn’t make fun of religion!  Caution: naughty word at the end. From her intro/explanation when she e-mailed it to me:

Have you seen the cozy little ads on TV by The American Petroleum Institute, the lobbying arm of Big Oil?  They feature a Meredith Vieira wannabe, who strolls about a canyon of enormous, misleading slogans.  She purrs fun petro-facts, all in an attempt to make Americans feel almost downright lucky to be financially raped by, say, ExxonMobil, a company that squeaked through the gas crisis by making $4,635,845.00/hour in profit last year!

Well, in the interest of honesty — and never overlooking an opportunity to be snide, — I re-edited those ads to make them a bit more candid.  Watching it, you will have a taste for what it would be like to live in a world where businesses — and politicians — told the truth once in a while . . .
