The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

BushCo throughout history

Now that everyone knows George W. Bush, without Karl Rove's knowledge, broke into the Dark Lord's chambers and cranked up the weather-control device, thereby causing Hurricane Katrina, it's about time we looked into some other previous "accidents" in which the Bush family had an unsteady hand.

For instance, the Black Plague:

Acting on a dare from drinking buddy Alaster Kennedy, hard partying Barclay Bush releases a boxful of infected English Black Rats in his town's marketplace. This unwittingly caused millions of deaths and forever drove a wedge between the two dynastic political families.

And if you think that's bad, consider this:

After an all night whiskey and cocaine bender, Danny Terrio Bush entertains the early morning crowd at a Manhattan diner with his flashiest drug-induced moves. The eatery's young patrons liked what they saw and by the time Danny awoke two days later, disco had arrived.

That's the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it, uh-huh, uh-huh.

(Borrowed from miriam's ideas.)

And let's not forget that whole "discovery of fire" thing. That screw-up alone has resulted in all this environmental devastation that never would have happened if Ogg Bush hadn't made it possible for H. habilis to start making tools, which led to industry, and cars, and reality TV.

And don't forget how San Francisco mayor Eugene Schmitz Bush in 1906 not only stood idly by and watched his city burn, but pressed-ganged laborers into service:)

Or was this before he caused the shakes?
