What's Brown, Disgusting and Generally Floats?

From the Onion:

"Massive Flow Of Bullshit Continues To Gush From BP Headquarters

LONDON — As the crisis in the Gulf of Mexico entered its eighth week Wednesday, fears continued to grow that the massive flow of bullshit still gushing from the headquarters of oil giant BP could prove catastrophic if nothing is done to contain it.

The toxic bullshit, which began to spew from the mouths of BP executives shortly after the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in April, has completely devastated the Gulf region, delaying cleanup efforts, affecting thousands of jobs, and endangering the lives of all nearby wildlife."

Hah! Nice one.

What nobody outside the UK seems to notice is that BP shares form the backbone of many a British pension fund. So this fuckup is going to financially harm a lot of people, on both sides of the pond, well into the future. As well as royally screwing an ecosystem, of course.
