    fracking oil prices (are a bit higher than drawing from a natural reservoir)

    Wow, just wow. Funny, but I think there are some that won’t feel the same, and they tend to take things rather personal. Siberia would be a good place to flee to.

    Well, Stephan. I hear there’s an apartment to rent right next door to Salman Rushdie.

    Any chance the gov’t still has any of those blankets they gave the “Indians?” they ’d make lovely headresses for the sheikhs.

    Is Pastis trying to win the Pulitzer Prize for religious bigotry? He’s supposedly depicting the mainstream Muslims who have overthrown their countries’ dictators in the Arab Spring. I don’t think Pastis is really a bigot, but this is badly misdirected satire.

    I’m guessing that, when all the excitement started, Rat disguised himself as a woman so he could sneak out of the situation, and that’s why he now has to wear a burqa.
    Either that or he just loves the way it feels…

    What I love about this is how it nicely points out how the Arab uprisings tend to be replacing despotic religious tyrants with despotic theocracies.

    Oh, my! Now is the winter of our discontent! Down with domination by burka! Down with oil cartels! Rescue McFeely!
