"And Up Through the Ground Came a Bubblin' Crude"
Remember the theme song of The Beverly Hillbillies? (It was by far the most creative and entertaining part of that series, although watching Max Baer chew his way through the scenes as Jethro was sometimes amusing.) I was amused to find this oil well for sale:
Asking Price: $51,600
Gross Income: $23,500
Cash Flow: $21,050
That is such an impressive return on investment that I am immediately suspicious.
