"great art" is best enjoyed when your mouth is open too.

Until I moved to the west coast, I had no idea what a butte was or how to pronounce it.

After spending the morning shiatting my pants, as a lunatic went nuts about 100 yards from me, I needed a great headline like this.

Thanks subby

:That's not a well, it's the eye of the sacred serpent mound on which you're standing.

:It's a beautte.

:No, it's a mound.

:And right purty too.

/First thing I think of when I hear 'butte'.

Some articles should never have the following words in them at the same time:

Natural Gas

It would just conjure up way to many bad memories for altar boys.

"Lasky determined that gas leaked from a line behind McCarthy's brownstone..."

It just gets better...

Nice Big Chill quote.

I can't decide if all the Subby haters on this thread are either jealous that they didn't come up with this first, or simply genetically predisposed to think that certain things can't be funny if you're going to vote for Hillary!

+1 Subby!

This article is a little too "Spot on"...
Hilarious nontheless.

15 years after my H.S. principal left to take a job in Crested Butte, Colorado, I still giggle when I think about how we all liked to call it "Crusty Butt."
2007-04-16 4:41:49 PM  
"Leaking gas from Butte" and "flowing over you" should not go in the same sentence. Well done subby.

Having spent a substantial portion of my childhood in Butte, I can say that a large natural gas explosion there is very likely to fall under the heading of "urban renewal." I mean, really - the main tourist draw there is a really big hole in the ground which is slowly filling with toxic waste.
2007-04-16 6:14:54 PM  
Pure awesome

i attended evel knievel days in butte. town has indeed seen better has evel knievel. he's on an oxygen breather set-up!

I grew up over the hill and graduated from Montana Tech in Butte. I think its safe to say that a gas explosion there ANYWHERE would be an improvement. You know, like when you light a match to get rid of the stink in the bathroom.

/smells like Butte
