After an undersea oil pipeline burst, several hundred thousand barrels of oil escaped into the Pacific Ocean.
At least the ocean doesn’t squeak any more.
This joke is a memorial to my best friend, Jim Moran, a longtime spokesman for Sun Oil in Philadelphia. It was his gag.
He would have been 82 today, and for those of you who own my novel, Press Card, the character Jim Moriarty is based on him.
Rest in peace, my friend. I miss you.
