Tony Hayward, yachtsman and company PR headache

FROM THE PEN OF THE BARD OF AVON CALLING:

Tony Hayward took off for a day with his yacht
He said it was an escape that he needed a lot.
As the BP oil was spreading
Up our coast it was heading
He blithely shrugged, "What hath God wrought?"

Abe, please stick to prose; you're so much, much better at it. {:')

From the fiends that plague thee thus! -
Why look'st thou so?' -"With my crossbow
I shot the Albatross."

Hayward is doing what English aristocrats have always done - leading a life of conspicuous leisure while the commoners muck out the stables. N'est-ce pas?

PJ, you are obviously not a bloke. Have you never heard of the Great Chain of Being, which guarantees the line of kings and sorts out everybody else according to their civil rank. So you and I need not apply. If you're lucky, you'll qualify for a canoe.

A canoe would be better than the yellow rubber ducky I have now. 'Guess I've got something to hope for.
