Energy Secretary Granholm Unaware Of
Where Oil Comes From

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm

WASHINGTON, D.C. – During a press conference on Tuesday, when US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm struggled with even the most basic questions about rising gasoline prices, a reporter grew frustrated and asked, “Do you even know where oil comes from?”

“I don’t have that information in front of me,” answered Granholm. “I’ll have to circle back with you.”

An aid then whispered in her ear, and Granholm exclaimed, “The ground?! No. That can’t be. I think it comes from someone named ‘OPEC’.”

A stunned press corps stood silent.

“Haven’t you ever heard of the phrase ‘drilling for oil’?” a reporter asked.

“Or watched ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’?”

Granholm replied that she wasn’t up-to-date with all the latest oil terminology, and hasn’t seen the oil documentary they mentioned.

Granholm then pointed out that her job wasn’t about oil; it was about energy.
