Top 10 list: BushCo "Energy Usage Tips"
10. Be sure to keep your thermostat at 74F this winter. The warmer, the better!

9. It's always a good idea (in any season!) to run your car or truck for at least 20 minutes before operating it. You don't want to drive with cold fluids!

8. Practice good hygiene! A proper shower should last at least 15 minutes, or until the hot water starts to turn brrrrrrr!

7.

6.

5.

2. 6.
Fuel efficient "cars" are for sissies. You aren't a sissy are you? Purchase an SUV, large Pick-up Truck or Hummer like a man would.

3. Don't bother cooking with the lids on your pots.
Liquids don't come to a boil that much faster, who's kiddin' who!

4. Home insulation is pink for a reason.
It's a commie plot to prevent fresh air from entering your home. Whatever you do, don't insulate! You'll suffocate in your sleep if you do.

6. And duct tape works better as an insulator anyway, plus you get the
added bonus - you're ready for those ever-popular biological attacks!

5. Buy stock in...
... utility management and futures companies (Enron, Dynegy, El Paso, First Energy) because this makes your energy future secure....
