The Leader of the Free World and some Billy Joel

According to The Onion, when finally acknowledging the existence of carbon dioxide, Bush has this to say:
"Carbon dioxide, a molecule which contains one atom of carbon bonded with two atoms of oxygen, is a naturally occurring colorless gas exhaled by humans and metabolized, in turn, by plants," Bush told a stunned White House press corps. "As a leading industrialized nation, we can no longer afford to ignore the growing consensus of so many experts whose job it is to study our atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is real."
The rest of this great article is here and you must check out the War on Criticism. I just love these guys!!

A request I couldn't ignore — not when a song asks as nicely as this one does. As someone's who's recently quit the IT industry, I found this hugely hilarious. Great script and a fantastic soundtrack! Also, all the people involved (from what I can tell) are in the IT industry — just makes it so much more fun, don't you know.
