Hillsborough Commissioners Get YouTubed
Local artist Dee Hood has created a side splitting animated video for YouTube called "BOCC Bozos," lampooning the Hillsborough County Commissioners who voted to disband the $2.2-million wetlands management division at the county's Environmental Protection Commission: Brian Blair, Ken Hagan, Jim Norman and Kevin White.
Featuring Jib-Jab-style animated pictures of the commissioners cavorting through a barren Florida field, the video unfolds set to the strains of the Beatles' diatribe against square, venal greedy businessmen. Props to WTVT-Ch. 13 reporter Warren Elly for his light-hearted report on the whole thing, viewable here.
Here's the video; Lyrics under the YouTube window:
Have you seen the little piggies
Crawling in the dirt
And for all the little piggies
Life is getting worse
Always having dirt to play around in.
Have you seen the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts to play around in.
In their styes with all their backing
They don't care what goes on around
In their eyes there's something lacking
What they need is a damn good whacking.
Everywhere there's lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon.
