BP Your Heart Is Black

by

BP is so intent on deflecting national anger it has bought the
phrase "oil spill" on Yahoo and Google, making the company's website
the first link that shows up - with the tagline,
"Learn more about how BP is helping." Alas, people still hate them. Protests
grow around the country, almost 450,000 people have joined the Boycott BP movement on Facebook, and this
week Seize BP
is holding multiple actions. To top it off, The
Onion
is picking on them. 

"As the crisis in the Gulf of Mexico entered its eighth week, 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."
