Backyard Victory Oil Production

During WWII, production of equipment for the war effort was unprecedented. Hundreds of Tanks, Planes and Ships rolled off assembly lines daily.

Americans were further required to ration themselves on food products and other items like fuel and cigarettes to assist our boys overseas.

You might of also heard of the Victory Gardens during this time.

Amid regular rationing of canned food in Britain, a poster campaign ("Plant more in '44!") encouraged the planting of Victory Gardens by nearly 20 million Americans. These gardens produced up to 40 percent of all the vegetable produce consumed nationally.
(Victory Garden from Wikipedia)

So here we are in the middle of a great war again. Economy is slowing, fuel cost are escalating, so for Americans like our Forefathers and Mothers, when the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Gets Going! So here is my proposal for Backyard Victory Oil Gardens

Equipment needed is some sort of drilling device or derrick and some of those Inflatable ring Wal Mart Pools for Oil storage. Make sure to have plenty of EB Green tape around for emergency maintenance and containment to keep the EPA in check too. I figure about 5 houses for drilling and one Neighbor house as a refinery. The only problem is those Nazi Golf Cart Home Owner Association Nannie's. So at least try to paint all your equipment within local approved Home Owners Association guidelines for Heavens Sakes! Plus, if you strike Oil in your backyard thats got to help the resale value of homes in the neighborhood anyway..If you have any more idea's or engineering proposals for The Backyard Victory Oil Project, post them in the comment section. Happy Drilling!!!

If I strike oil in my backyard, I'm gettin' out of the Navy....... So where can I find an oil rig? Preferably secondhand!?

How do you keep the kids out of the oil?

I say let the kids swim, good for the skin. Oh, and dont dump any used oil by the back fence. People hate that!!
