OF TOO MANY PROJECTS – – –
IPPNIHINELETE = IN THE PIPELINE
Good Morning, Everyone! ⛽️ PIPE DREAMS ⛽️
🎶At 5 in the morning, I get outta bed…They fork up the coffee, to clear my head…Go down to the kitchen to get some chow, The foreman says…”WELL we gotta leave now”…I got my safety glasses, hard hat and safety shoes…I got those every day, working on the PIPELINE blues….🎶
⛽️ You can look and see the money kind of showing on his face,
And the Oil Man is telling Joe to just pick up the pace.
Like the bottom of the NINTH here, there is no time to lose..
And INVERTing pipe and laying it is what the men did choose.
Called the HIPPO Oil Company because it’s large and mean…
A hippos got a barrel shape and barrels are their dream…
But to do it to the LETTER, means you gotta’ do it right,
And the projects start to pile up…an Oil Man’s worst plight.
But the greed and the ambition and the “gimme all that’s mine”…
O’er a barrel put our Oil Man, cause it’s all….IN THE PIPELINE!⛽️
OIL I know is, today’s anagrams are TOP NOTCH! Not hard, not CRUDE, but scrambled up just enough to make them PROJECT a little extra thought or two. *Thirteen LETTERS* can LAY anyone out! But if you write our LETTERs out in a LINE, WELL, they won’t have you over a BARREL! And that brings us to our cartoon. Today, we’re out at a construction SITE, where we see an OIL tycoon, MARK ITUP, telling his foreman, Joe, that the work on LAYING PIPELINES at this SITE needs to be wrapped up. There are other jobs that will need OIL his attention. Joe knows! And he’s trying his best…But there’s just too many PROJECTS…There’a a phrase that means “awaiting completion or processing; being developed“. That phrase is..IN THE PIPELINE. And our question is stating that the company is way behind schedule. And the only solution? Oh Wait..That IS the solution! To the puzzle at least..As far as the OIL PROJECT backlog goes?…WELL, that’s not our problem now, is it? Nope! Our job was just to solve this puzzle, and we have! So let’s look for eye candy…MARK ITUP has a nice bushy mustache, but I’m not paying any LIP service to it…I’ll just go with the OIL WELL icons on his 10 GALLON hat and his Bolo tie. They’re not great, but they’re OIL right. So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And remember...OILS WELL that ends WELL! ⛽️🙋🏻
** CORRECTION: My Email went out early this morning reading *Fifteen consonants*. I have no idea what I may have been thinking. There aren’t even fifteen letters! I do way too much juggling! I’ve corrected it, and I apologize to any of you who may still be counting…! 😳🙋🏻
