Radio 102.5 in Pennsylvania has started airing a sarcastic radio ad titled "Marcellus Shale Pale Ale".  The link to the ad can be found here.  

Transcript below:

It's been a great year.  You've made a fortune by leasing the family's farm to a gas company, and now it's time to celebrate the season. Time to go over the burning river, through the spot where the woods used to be, up the new stone and mud roadway, past the 50 foot blow torch in the sky - skirting the temporary workers' trailers - right on down the former sight of grandma's house.  It's time to celebrate the season with Marcellus Shale Pale Ale.  Marcellus Shale Pale Ale is the lightly carbonated, slightly intoxicating adult beverage for those who can suddenly afford more.  Brewed from 100% Pennsylvania Frack Water, Marcellus Shale Pale Ale is the beer for those who like good times, good friends, and a slight case of cancer causing carcinogen.  Marcellus Shale Pale Ale, grandpa worked this land and you sold it.  Celebrate the holiday's with friends, family, and -most importantly - Cody, your Texas representative from the nation wide drilling company.  Celebrate the holidays with Marcellus Shale Pale Ale.  Just don't get too close to that fire place - if you know what I mean.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
