I have heard that the guys who run this site are about sell out to Google for a trillion dollars.

What makes you write for free?

I tried snorting Coke once, put that little pop top thingie cut me up something terrible and gave me a nose bleed.

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

This is serious, guys. They won't let us re-apply for benefits until February. I would appreciate any stories about BP and its practices from the rest of you, if you don't mind. Here's my story: BP Cancels Superman's Insurance

I'm afraid I'd have a hard time making a story about BP much less than viscious (not sure humor and vicious can co-exist, but I'll give it some thought.)Seems there is an Alaska angle to their story, environmental problems due to carelessness and lack of maintenance. I've got IT!

Okay Cal, Here is my BP contribution, it is "Live":



British Pretroleum Threatens to Take Over Darfur! George Clooney Says NO!

APE Line News - British Petroleum, who recently revoked the insurance from their underpaid, malnourished employees worldwide, is now threatening to take over Darfur from the Sudanese Government and United Nation forces.

British Petroleum has secretly over time developed its own strike force, including a small aircraft carrier and harrier jets. (Harrier than what? Nobody would answer.)

Why Darfur? "Oil of course," said George Clooney, "They want to force thousands from their land and only teach them to "break dance" in return, I ask you, is this not in-humane? The world should teach British Pretroleum a lesson in manors," said Clooney invoking his famous Batman voice.

Speaking from her prison cell, new official spokesperson Paris Hilton had this response to George Clooney, "Mr Clooney is totally misrepresenting British Petoleums effort for the people of Darfur. We plan to build a chain of high priced resorts there and employ the people of Darfur, both in the hotels and in the oil fields. They will have the best salaries and insurance in the region, which presently should equal $2 per day."

Clooney responded in kind, "That's preposterous, though I've never understood that word. Hilton is once again letting her vagina do the talking."

BP Forces are said to be steaming towards the region and it looks as if not even George W. Bush himself could stop them, or we should say, especially not himself. The sons and daughters of America maybe, but not himself.

P.S. I hope you get lots of hits! May The Spoof Be With You!

Thanks! I became interested in the Spoof because I'm a great Paul McCartney fan and in following his news I'd occasionally see a Spoof story that slammed one of his many ego trips, of which there are many for one of the Fab Four. This has been a fun release, who knows maybe we'll all be part of a large lawsuit from BP. Nothing like a lawsuit to bring people together. Oh and my name isn't Jean it is actually Jim, but my brother and sisters call me Jim-Ed-Bob-Paul-Mark-Fred-John.

Well, unfortunately, my name is really Cal (Calvin to be exact). Cal-el has been my nickname since grade school, but I hated it until recently. When I found out the meaning of "el," I decided to embrace it.

Which meaning of "El"?

In Hebrew, it means God.

In Spanish, it means "The" (masculine tense).

In England, I've been told it is the railroad system.

Knowing what I know about you, I'd think you were going for the Hebrew.

Are you trying to tell us that you are really the father of Fergus?

Well, like my wife says, "You have to make coffee because the Bible says Hebrews."

We all have the power to become sons of God, you know.

Thanks for the support, Gnarly! I knew I could count on you. That million dollars will come in handy for my next two payments to the insurance company.

I should be in 'Rehab', but when you're poor, that's just a semi-dark alley.

It's fun. I get to mock political figures and others. I get to express my views, in a joking way, to a larger audience than I would otherwise have. It's an outlet for creativity, something lacking in the life of most lawyers.

Plus there's the incredible commercial value. Why in the last month, 5 people have followed the link from my profile page to my law firm website (really). Now if one of them happens to suffer an amputation in a motorcycle accident in New York State, they might remember my name, and call me to ask for a referral to a good lawyer.

Let's hope they don't blame any subsequent necrotizing fasciitis complications on your Spoof posts!

Only joking.

Keep up the good work.
