DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Tony Hayward, BP CEO

May 14th, 2010 | 3 comments | Posted by Diana




My mom would say that stupidity is the first step towards disgrace, and thusly, saying stupid things one of the world’s most disgraceful acts.

I wonder if Tony Hayward, BP’s CEO, thought about that before he spit up this drivel during an idiotic interview with the UK’s Guardian:

The Gulf of Mexico is a very big ocean. The amount of volume of oil and dispersant we are putting into it is tiny in relation to the total water volume,” he said.

Okay, before somebody explains this guy how an oil spill that’s already bigger than the state of Maryland can never be dismissed as “tiny,” can we please tell him what a fuckin’ ocean is? And how the Gulf of Mexico–which is actually an ocean basin–ISN’T ONE?
