Backstage getting ready for the Red Carpet, it's Fracking Chemical Cocktail looking stirred, not shaken.
Friends call her "Frackie," friends like trichloroethylene.
Trichloroethylene, the cancer-causing solvent, is known to his friends as TCE.
TCE and Frackie foul groundwater across the nation.
They like being very bad confident that the American people are too stupid too realize the harm they are causing.
Frackie serves up at least four known radionuclides used in fracking, like Iodine-131 and Technicum-99. Hot stuff!
Frackie loves the Red Carpet which she calls the Dead Carpet when the Toxies are in town.
The crowd eats up Frackie. Or at least it would like to.

Consuela Contaminacion interviews the Toxie.
Frackie has heard it all.
Consuela was caught on tape saying to Tex "Do you think they're real?" about Frackie's assets.
Charmingly, Frackie declines to reveal the ingredients of her cocktails. "It's a trade secret."
Frackie's trade secrets include 600 chemicals, including four radionuclides like Iodine-131, make up the goo being drilled and pumped into the substrata.
Who wouldn't get thirsty just looking at Frackie?
My chemical romance.
Frackie counts on the chemistry clicking between her and the consumer.
She offers an array of attractive assets such as quick money selling off groundwater rights under impoverished properties back east.
"My eyes are up here, Mr. EnviroRepervert."
Frackie even has folks in the Inglewood Hills seeing their houses crack because of what they think is the fracking going on in the adjacent oil field.
Anticipation in the darkness.

The magic moment has arrived!
Frackie came prepared.
A speech is called for.
Frackie thanks the people who really really don't like her.
Those people in the audience don't know whether to cheer or boo.
Fracki reminds them that she's here to stay.
Winning at being the worst makes Frackie come alive. She knows that her drilling makes all the difference with the judges.
Frackie knows that as much as people are scared of her and what she can do to their lives, she is irresistible.
Who wouldn't want what she's peddling?
Apparently some of the folks in the audience who booed when Frackie talked of "energy independence."
No problem, Frackie just keeps coming on sticking to her agenda.
Fracking Chemical Cocktail owned the limelight at the Third Annual Toxies and now joins the polluted pantheon of poisonous toxic anti-pops stars like Perchlorate.
The Good, Bad and the Really Hot has Frackie in the limelight to stay.
No one shines like Frackie as she marches across the land permanently destroying irreplaceable groundwater and ruining the environment.
Winners all in the war on the environment.
