Oil Spill Explained

A concise explanation of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico:

"You're not going to have a problem before you start. It's starting that causes the problem."

"The first thing to do in an event like that is to underestimate the problem."
"What? Underestimate the problem?"
"Yes. We don't want people to panic. I mean you got to calm people down. A lot of people get very worried."
"Why do they get worried?"
"Well, cause the sea's filling with oil. A lot of people are very sentimental about the sea..."
This is untouchable.
Thank you BL.

It took me a second to realize it's satire. Almost too true to be humorous at all.

I know! There's a fine line between parody and truth in that.
