I wonder if Al Gore will climb on that bandwagon. The wheels rotted off his last one.

Naw, they didn't rot off, they just got stuck in the ice.

I wish we could sacrifice him to the volcano god but the only virgin area of his body is his brain.

We're all gonna go but I don't wanna be killed by a volcano or a train. Wonder what the odds are?

What's wrong with gettin' hit by a train? Lots of respectable people been hit by trains. Judge Hobby over in Cook County got hit by a train.

If it blows, we'll be rid of the Left Coast. I wonder if it is possible to move the caldera under DC?

Vermont Woodchuck: Your wish is my command. Since the hotspot under Yellowstone is geostationary, and the continent is moving westward at about 1 cm. per year, the volcanism should reach the East Coast in about 70 million years. Until then we will have to find more feasible means to achieve a goal devoutly to be wished.
