Don’t Let the Door Hit You on the Way Out

So the Cosco Busan escaped the Bay Area on Thursday morning.

Hey guys, thanks for stopping by. We appreciate the inept seamanship, bad steering, and general incompetence that marked your stay. Hopefully you can come by again some time, foul our waters, kill a couple thousand birds, poison some fish, spread tar on our beaches, and generally piss us off.

Thanks for leaving us that wonderful holiday present of 58,000 gallons of oil which, as you know, doesn’t come very cheap these days. I just wish you would’ve found a better way to deliver it than using the Bay Bridge as a can opener. Apparently, it was a surprise gift.

It was such a surprise, no one was ready for it. But that makes sense. It’s not like there’s a lot of water in the Bay Area, so we shouldn’t have state and federal agencies ready for this sort of thing. Now, if we had oil refineries around here, it might be a different story …

You ever wonder how the human race managed to invent the toaster, never mind going to the Moon? If I didn’t know better, I’d say it’s a matter of priorities.
