image for New Gas Source Discovered
"Thees reely smells bad"

ECOVATIONS, an Obama stimulus-backed company in North Carolina specializing in locating new energy sources, announced today that they had located a massive new energy source in Chile, near the site of the recent mine disaster.

The new gas, called Humfesbododor apparently rose to the mine ceiling and found an escape route and settled in a large cavern, so large that it could supply the entire South American continent with fuel for three hundred years.

Shown in this photograph is Juan Carlos de Bodega, Chief Exploration Engineer with ECOVATIONS, shortly after he made this amazing discovery.

ECOVATIONS is now working on a method to eliminate the horrendously offensive odor that the gas emits so that it may be used without causing nausea and vomiting.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
