I lol'd but I don't know why. I think at this point I'm just pavlovian-conditioned to laugh at an odd facial expression coupled with a non-sequitor caption.

Yeah, I don't get it. That's happening more and more these days.

Huh?

Well why isn't he, dammit? It's the only way to be sure.

I'm not considering not flagging this and moving on.

At this point, what's the worst that can happen? Endless radioactive oil? Er.

He's trying, very hard. That is a look of a man trying very hard to ignore a crater in his life. It was a tough breakup. At odd times, it just pops into his head: bomb. Then he saw Dr. Strangelove (the things that pass you by, the things you don't have time for on the way to your PhD, and then to politics) and there it was. Some other man was with his bomb. Hootin', hollerin', carrying on ... a grand old time.

It's over now, and the little trick of snapping a rubber band against his wrist every time that syllable crossed his mind helped, but that doesn't mean that he is happy. Or that he ever will be, not since she dropped that — dammit! *snap*

what's the worst that can happen?

Badly fracturing the strata of the whole area, creating a hundred holes are created, releasing what would take years to leak in a week?

Not to mention the possibility of igniting ALL of the methane in the reservoir AT ONCE. (When that happened in the past, it was really, really bad.)

Just kidding. No, he's not. He'll have the chipotle burger.

What other things can he not consider? STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT.

Well, don't just let him hang around looking like a dick, people.

Somebody set us up the bomb. And for fuck's sake, can we just launch every Zig already?

For great justice!!!!!

I feel as though I have just lost a game of 20 Questions with Steven Chu, and now he's staring at me with grave disappointment. Somehow, I know he's not going to tell me what he actually was thinking about.

To me, it looked more like, "Steven Chu, while walking through headhunter territory, realizes that he has heard a twig snap just behind him..."

But I can pull a lot of information out of a simple nervous glance.

ENERGY SECRETARY STEVEN CHU IS CONSIDERING THE AUK
by Ogden Nash

Consider the auk;
Becoming extinct because he forgot how to fly, and could only walk.
Consider man, who may well become extinct
Because he forgot how to walk and learned how to fly before he thinked.

He's too busy thinking about beans and portobello mushrooms.

I'm sorry, but that is clearly the face of a man who is considering a bomb.

Consider the auk

an auk in flight is sheer delight
as it soars above the sea

an auk on land is not so grand
an auk walks awk-wardly
