The strata of Egypt??

I don't think I've ever seen a satirical use of a stratigraphic cross-section before, but last night I caught the Daily Show and this funny block diagram (Stewart remarked about how it was a great untapped reservoir):

There can be a lot of comedy in geology if one looks for it, notwithstanding all the unintentionally funny misspellings of terminology.

Disclaimer: I'm not making any political or religious comment about the situation in Egypt, I'm simply amused by the combination of satire & geology, and I hope readers are as well

Not to mention the fact that you have bedrock *above* the sediment...
