So I posted a comment on Ann's Blog - she's hosting Accretionary Wedge32. She's put a great list together, and, fittingly, uses the theme of Mardi Gras.
The captcha phrase I had was "gastrope" and I think this should become an actual word. Perhaps "Drill, Baby, Drill" is our latest gas-trope. One that is both catchy and frustratingly short-sighted.
