God knows BP hasn't had many victories lately.
Sure, they capped the well and all but, while it could hardly be called an afterthought, it certainly belonged in "more of a whimper than a bang" category. Much as they wanted to savor the triumph, BP didn't want anyone to really dwell on that whole awkward IT TOOK US FIVE MONTHS part of the story.
So maybe this is one last attempt to snatch victory from the jaws of death that the British are so well known for. Personally, I'm willing to give it to them because goddamn it, I think they've earned it this time. So, Stephen Fry's rather historic assertion aside, I think we can all agree that the British have at long last won the Irony War.
And kudos to BP for being the ones to bring the trophy back home with what looks to be a longplaying show, revolving around a elegantly simple yet reliably absurd theme:
With respect to the giant clusterfucking disaster they've created, BP would very much like us all to kindly bury our heads in the sand. And god knows plenty of us would like to at this point. But...wait for it....
Dig in the sand, that is.Well played, BP, well played. (h/t to Patrick for the video)
